Monsoon brings a lot of hopes especially in a country like India where we are dependent on it largely for our crops. In areas like Maharashtra, Uttar Pradesh rain is the key deciding factor for thousands of farmers and their families. Mostly monsoon hits the northern and central part of the country by the starting of the June but this year it has been predicted to come late. Last year monsoon has arrived in Mumbai by 10th of June but by this year it has been delayed to 25th June which is considered as the longest delay in the past ten years by the MET department scientists. The department has predicted the arrival of southwest monsoon for Mumbai in mid of July. Mumbai and adjoining villages of Maharashtra are facing water cut due to a shortage in rainfall in the past few years.

An official from the civic body of Mumbai has informed that Mumbai can face another phase of water cut due to less rain and delayed monsoon this year. Deputy Director General of Meteorology, India Meteorology Department (IMD), Mumbai, K S Hosalikar, tweeted about the arrival of the monsoon in Maharashtra. He also admitted that the northern limit of southwest monsoon is expected to cover many regions of Maharashtra including Mumbai. It will also give relief to people of Gujarat and Madhya Pradesh.
When the reason behind the delay has been touted a senior official in the department said that it is due to the cyclone Vayu that came in parts of southern India including Tamilnadu and Kerala. According to Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC), official Mumbai water levels are depleting faster and soon there will be a crisis in the city if water will not fall from the sky.
The main supply of the city comes from seven reservoirs in the outskirts: Modak Sagar, Tansa Lake, Vihar Lake, Tulsi lake, Upper Vaitarna, Bhatsa, and Middle Vaitarna. The actual supply of water to the people of Mumbai is 3750 million which is still shortfall with the actual requirement of 4200 million liters.Latest Environment news.
