The dam used to over­flow ear­lier be­cause of good rain­fall and we could sup­ply suf­fi­cient wa­ter to res­i­dents. How­ever, the last year’s rain­fall was as bad as that of 2004 and thus we are fac­ing a cri­sis sit­u­a­tion.

Navi Mum­bai Mu­nic­i­pal Cor­po­ra­tion (NMMC) is the only civic body in In­dia that owns a dam. Cidco takes wa­ter (120mld) from Hetawane and Bhokarpada dams to dis­trib­ute in their ju­ris­dic­tion, but both the dams be­long to Maharashtra Jee­van Prad­hikaran.

Like­wise MIDC takes wa­ter from dif­fer­ent sources from across the state to dis­trib­ute in the in­dus­trial units of their area.

The NMMC takes 2mld and 55mld wa­ter from Cidco and MIDC re­spec­tively.


Cer­tain nodes of Navi Mum­bai such as Airoli are get­ting wa­ter for only three days a week.
