With lakes starting to overflowing, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has started providing additional 100 million litres of water per day, the officials said.

Mumbai: The BMC is planning another cloud seeding experiment at the catchment area near Vihar lake to induce rains and address water scarcity in the city.

MUMBAI: The BMC is carrying out soil testing work in the Tulsi lake area, which falls within the core zone of the Sanjay Gandhi National Park (SGNP). Interestingly, both park officials and those in the civic body claim ignorance about it initially. No one even has any clue about who gave permission for the work, or if any such permission was granted at all.

In the present scenario where the rains are delayed and most of Maharashtra has received very little rains, Mumbai will have to reduce its dependence on the adjacent districts for its water requirements. Moreover there is very little to no data available
