Water crisis in rajasthan: Water in Bisalpur dam (Bisalpur dam), which supplies drinking water to 6 districts including Jaipur, is very less. This has started to mess up the demand and supply equations. They may become worse in the coming times.
Water from the Bisalpur dam, which overflowed two years ago, is supplied to the surrounding districts for agriculture and drinking water. Every year around 12 TMC of water from the Bisalpur dam is supplied only for drinking water. Whereas according to the agreement, more water is supplied for agriculture in the districts around the dam.
This time in summer, there will be limited supply of drinking water from the dam.
The dependence of drinking water supply on the Bisalpur dam is increasing continuously. Therefore, agricultural water is being cut. If the supply of water from the Bisalpur dam is stopped for agriculture and only for drinking water, then this dam can supply drinking water to all the districts dependent on it for four years. The department of water supply says that this time in the summer, only a limited amount of drinking water can be supplied from the dam. At the same time, if Indradev gets angry and Surya Dev comes in anger, then these equations can also get worse. Because in excess heat the water from the dam evaporates in large quantities.Two years ago, there was a huge water shortage in the dam.
The amount of steam flowing from the Bisalpur dam reaches around twenty percent every year. Two years ago there was a huge water shortage in the Bisalpur dam. Then the Department of Water had made arrangements to quench the thirst of people in the summer by digging tubewells. But this time, due to the amount of water in the lap of Mother Earth too much, the situation may worsen.
These projects also have to be given water from Bisalpur
Bisalpur Project Superintendent Engineer Shubhanshu Dixit of the Department of Water, says that this time the work of four big projects is in progress as per the announcement of the state government in the summer. 850 colonies of several projects including Prithviraj Nagar, Kho-Nagorian and Amer have to supply drinking water from the Bisalpur dam.
