Denizens blame Urban Water Supply for dry water spell

JORHAT, July 17: Consumers of the Urban Water Supply scheme here have been literally left high and dry with the water hard coming in at a trickle and many taps running dry in the last few days.
Venting his ire on the poor services of the Urban Water Supply scheme, Partha Baruah said that the raising of the tariff from Rs 120 to Rs 312 was unjustified given the hours of water which is supplied to most houses.
"In the evening when previously two hours of water was usually given, nowadays no water comes and our overhead tank of 50 litres becomes empty,' he said.
