Water Tankers in the city provided by the HMWS&SB are on the run everywhere, especially in summer and the start of the monsoon. This is because the city's municipal bodies take up many works that require water cut off, and summer is a factor for shortage of water at home. But the past few years haven't seen water shortage as a problem, and the requirement for tankers has significantly gone down.
An official from the Hyderabad Metropolitan Water Supply and Sewerage Board has found that plenty of rains, moderate summers, and the addition of new connections and reservoirs getting filled with rains and increase of groundwater level have reduced the overall demand for water tankers by residents. In addition, over the past few years, the peak number of calls during summer has also taken a downslide as most of them haven't had major water issues.
The HMWS&SB is still addressing issues with 800 tankers per day, and these tankers are needed when there is some mechanical failure in the borewell or storage tanker at homes or apartments. On the contrary to the household requirement, commercial sources and office spaces have required water more than ever as the demand shot up considerably amid the pandemic.
