In Mumbai, the seven reservoirs that provide the city with drinking water currently hold a combined 90.55 per cent of the city’s total water supply.
Data from the Mumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) show that as of Thursday, a total of 13,10,571 million litres of water, or 90.55 per cent, were stored in the seven reservoirs that provide Mumbai with drinking water.
Even though Mumbai has been experiencing nonstop rain, the lake levels throughout the year are still lower than they were last year.
One of the seven lakes that provide water to Mumbai, Modak Sagar, began to overflow on July 27 around 10:52 p.m., according to the local government. The Tulsi Lake flooded earlier on July 20 as a result of a lot of rain in the city and outskirts.

The civic body’s statistics indicate that Tansa’s water level is at 99.02 per cent. 98.68% of the water stock at Modak-Sagar is available.
