Gondia: In the same year, in the month of March, due to dry drying of river Wainganga, water scarcity was created in the city. In October this year, the water level in Dargoli was reduced due to the decreasing water level in the city for eight days irregular water supply to the city dwellers. In the month of October, due to water scarcity in the city dwellers, again there has been a shift in the flow of water to the people through the dam.
Water supply is provided to the city of Gondia through a water supply scheme set up under the Maharashtra-Life Authority’s section of the Wainganga river in Dangoli. The city has 40 thousand subscribers of the Authority and twice a day water is supplied. Considering the growing population of the city, an additional water supply scheme was created in the river of Wainganga in Dangoli, 17 kms from Gondia. Water is being supplied to the city dwellers from there.
Last year, due to low rainfall in the district, Wainganga river’s character was soon drying. So, 90 km from Gondia The devotees from the dam were distributed water from the dam to the water supply scheme. But due to good rainfall, the water level of the Wainganga river has also declined. It has resulted in water supply from now on. Due to the decrease in water level in October this year, the water scarcity crisis is likely to be expected this summer, said Sub-Divisional Engineer Rajendra Madke, Maharashtra Life Authority Division.
Majidra’s team did the inspection
Considering the possibility of water scarcity in the city, a team from the Maharashtra Jeevan Pradhikaran Department inspected the Vainganga river bed in Dargoli. The team noticed that the water level has decreased at that time. So, there is a possibility of water scarcity becoming the same year last year.
Water coming out of the shovel
Dangoli water supply scheme is about 90 kms away from the dam. Considering the possibility of water scarcity generated during the summer, this year it will reach Dhangarli via river no. Therefore, the same year as last year, there is a need to repair the nahar too.
No proposal yet
No proposal has been sent from this department till date to protect the dam’s dam water. A meeting of various departments is held in November-December on the directions of the Collector. In this meeting, a proposal will be sent to the Irrigation Department to reserve the dam’s water for the priest, said Maharashtra Jeevan Pradhikaran Department officials.
Irregular water supply to the city right now
Irregular water supply is being provided to the people of the city by the Maharashtra Jeevan Pradhikaran Department. Therefore, there is water scarcity in the rainy season in the city. Therefore, due to this situation, city residents are worried about the situation in the next four months.
