City heading for a water crisis

While the situation on the drinking water supply has been comfortable so far, The Hindu reports that the city might be headed for a water crisis with the BWSSB having to transport water through trains to tap sources other than the Kabini reservoir where the water level is at an all time low. The city's other water sources like the Thippagonadanahalli reservoir has been dry for two years now! Bangalore consumes 1.1 tmc of water a month and apparently last year millions of litres of water meant for the city were siphoned off by farmers! his year police are patrolling the 100-km long pipeline!
