Hyderabad: Nearly 40 percent of water supplied to the city goes wasted daily, thanks to the poor arrangements of water department and carelessness of public. Now that the summer season is coming to an end the water level has come down in water reservoir. The main reason behind water wastage is old and rusty pipelines. Daily 3 million gallon water supplied to the city from Osman Sagar goes wasted.

According to Dr. Manohar Babu, a proposal with the cost of Rs. 1200 crore was submitted to prevent water from getting wasted and to provide relief to areas affected with water scarcity. But it remained on paper. Another important reason behind water wastage is old and poorly maintained water tankers. Leakage in tankers is the major cause behind water wastage.
