 Why in News

  • The Water Resources Department plans to seek the release of water from Krishna river in April to meet the demand for water in the city during summer

  • The proposal depends on the water storage in Chennai and Andhra Pradesh.

  • It may be recalled that the department had earlier put off proposals for water discharge from Kandaleru reservoir in Andhra Pradesh for the next spell, beginning in January, as Chennai’s major waterbodies meeting the drinking water needs were full.
