  • KWA can meet only 50% of drinking water demand
  • About 92% of the households face scarcity issues, due to poor quality of the available water. There have been reports of fluoride, chloride, iron contamination in groundwater
  • Open wells are highly polluted due to salinity and bacterial contamination
  • The situation led to adoption of 18 Reverse Osmosis (RO) plants by the Municipality
