Dams providing drinking water in Pune have lowest stock since 2019

The current collective water stock of major reservoirs providing drinking water to Pune district has fallen to its lowest level since 2019. As on June 21, the available water stock was 13.15 per cent of the total stock whereas the ten-year average for this period is 23.76 per cent.This year, Pune region has suffered the steepest decline in the reservoir stock viz-a-viz 10-year average in Maharashtra till June 21, according to data provided by the Water Resources Department. Pune region comprises dams in Pune, Kolhapur, Satara, Sangli and Solapur districts.Like Pune district, Pune and Pimpri-Chinchwad stocks were the second-lowest since 2018. The live water reserve in the main dams in Pune city was Varasgaon with 363.13 Million Cubic Metre (MCum), Panshet with 301.61 Mcum, Bhama Asked with 217 MCum, Pavana 274.32 MCum and Khadawasla with 55.91 MCum.Among the major reasons cited by the officials of the irrigation department are poor pre-monsoon rainfall over the state and warmer than usual summer that led to greater evaporation from these surface storage facilities in the last three months.In the state, dams in Amravati, Aurangabad and Nashik regions maintained stocks better than their respective 10-year average for the same period. Konkan region has normal stock this year but reservoirs in Nagpur region presently hold marginally lower stock than the ten-year-average, the data suggested.

PUNE: The Vishrantwadi police are investigating a complaint registered by a 32-year-old jobless man on Sunday stating that tele callers duped him to the tune of Rs 27,460 on the pretext of installing a mobile tower on his plot at Daund near Pune in December last year. “The tele callers called Suyog Adhav a resident of Bhairavnagar in Dhanori and told him that a mobile company had planned to install a mobile tower on his property. The callers lured him by saying that the company will pay a deposit of Rs 15 lakh and will pay monthly rent of Rs 12,000 to him,” said inspector (crime) Vijay Shinde on Monday. Shinde said, “The tele callers instructed Adhav to deposit registration fees among other charges of Rs 27,460 for finalising the deal and collected photo copies of his voters card and Aadhar card. Adhav did not meet the tele callers in person and nor did he verify their credentials and nor did he contact the company for verifying details. Believing them to be genuine representatives of the firm, Adhav transferred money via e-wallet in the tele caller’s bank account.” Adhav later realised that he was cheated because the callers continued to make money demands. An FIR relating to cheating was registered under the relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code and Information Technology Act,” he added. Adhav was not available for comments when TOI staffer contacted him on phone.
