Bangalore Water Supply

The I.T hub of India is officially third most populous city of India. Needless to say, the demand for water in India’s 3rd most populous city is humongous. In Bangalore water supply is completely handled by Bangalore Water Supply and Sewerage Board (BWSSB). It’s an autonomous government agency formed in 1964 to look after water supply and sewage management of Bangalore city.

Bangalore Water supply

BWSSB completely relies on Cauvery River and Arkavathy River from where it extracts the water and supplies it to the Bangalore city. Approximately 80% of the water comes from Cauvery River and rest comes from Arkavathy River. As of today BWSSB supplies roughly 900 million liters, i.e. 238 million gallons, which is actually not enough to fulfill the humongous water demand in Bangalore.

The actual demand of water in Bangalore is 1.3 billion liters. To overcome this demand supply & deficit, BWSSB last year completed Cauvery River Stage IV Phase II project, which has helped BWSSB to augment 500 million liters of water supply to Bangalore city. The BWSSB has decided to supply water in tankers of 6,000 litre capacity. The authorities can supply two or three loads of water in 30 tankers every day to every area of the city.

It is also important to note that BWSSB uses state-of-the-art infrastructure to ensure that water supply is clean and infection free. BWSSB is also very people friendly and renders many customer friendly services like: online application for new water connection, online application for bore well connection, customer care 24 hours hotline no and easy bill outlet.
