The MCGM hopes to achieve a target of 13-lakh-million litres of water by September, with a sharp rise in water levels in all the six lakes in and around Mumbai, owing to incessant rains. MCGM is claiming that the situation is definitely good in comparison to last year and they are hopeful that they will be able to achieve the target of 13 lakh million litres of water by September. Three Lakes – Tulsi, Modak Sagar and Tansa started overflowing in July end and early August but the rest are yet to fill up completely. According to the data available with the civic body, currently the water capacity in all these lakes is 10, 23, 708 million litres as compared to 7, 22, 152 million litres in the corresponding period.
