Water Expenditure

"If you can not measure it, you can not improve it."Lord Kelvin

Water Usage Analysis - The Facts

stats derived from the charts:

  • @ Rs17k/day monthly water bill is about 5.1L which means our current monthly expenditure on water is ~Rs 650. (Rs5.1L/800 flats)
  • Per-flat-daily-water-consumption: 3L litres/800 = 375Litres of water/flat/day
  • Summer Forecast: during summer months accounting for water supply/demand , think the cost would increase.
  • During hot summer day, the apartment consumed 10L liters of water in a single day. That means on an avg, each flat consumed about 1250 liters of water.

NOTE: In bangalore, one person needs150 litres water/day.

Sub: Water Supply Stopped from 12 AM to 6 AM - NEXT URGENT Update
Dear Residents,

Kindly note that today our water consumption has multi-folded. We have consumed
around 10 Lakhs Litrestoday fom 5 AM till now - which is 3 times the normal
consumption (which amounts to 3Lakh Litres / day) . This esentially means we
have consumed/wasted 3 days of water by this time in a single day.

This is really alarming and to control any further loss - we have taken
descision to stop the water supply from 12 midnight to 6 AM. And further to
this - if the same story continues tomorrow also - we will supply the water in
shifts only - details of which will be shared soon.

At 11PM tonight - we are planning to take a round of basement and check where
the usage is high/continous running water. In case you would like to volunteer
for same - please come down - as we are really falling short of people now.

also heard that to meet the acute demand of water, the water tanker vendors sometime resort to
taking water from bellandur lake and nearby areas, which have become septic tanks due to the nearby
apt complexes pouring their untreated sewage into these lakes.
