One of the city’s water reservoirs, the Tulsi lake, started overflowing at 5.45 pm on Saturday. It’s the third lake to overflow after Modak Sagar and Tansa, and contributes 1-2 per cent of Mumbai’s total daily supply of 3,850 million litres (ML).

All the seven lakes currently have 11,38,097 ML of the total 14.47 ML capacity. This water stock can last for up to 295 days. Tulsi’s total capacity alone is 8,046 ML. The BMC takes stock of the water level in the lakes on October 1 annually. Last month, owing to deficient rainfall, it had imposed a 10 per cent water cut, which was withdrawn on July 8.

The lakes and dam reservoirs that supply drinking water to Mumbai are Tulsi, Tansa, Vihar, Bhatsa, Modak Sagar, Upper Vaitarna, and Middle Vaitarna.
