Karnataka is facing a strange phenomenon: it's in the grip of a drought and floods at the same time. The floods have followed two successive years of drought.

Well, heat is on and water scarcity has already hit many parts of Chikmagalur. The situation of people living in the city is no different.

Several extensions in Chikamaglur city is parched with little or no water. Women in Basavanahalli, Vijayapura, Kempanahalli, Aravindanagara, Mahatma Gandhi Road, Gowri Kaluve, Nekarabeedi, Ramanahalli are seen struggling to get even one pot of water.

Many labourers are seen waiting near the water pipes leaving their jobs.

The waste produced in the City Municipal Council (CMC) limits is being disposed near Indavara village on a daily basis, said the CMC President H D Thammaiah.

Kadur is one of the two towns in Chikmagalur district to get this facility

Kadur town will soon get permanent drinking water facility as Kadur is one among the towns selected by Karnataka Urban Water Supply and Drainage Board (KUWSDB) for its ambitious drinking water supply project, said Town Municipal Council Chief Officer S Omkaramurthy.
