As summer peaks and water supply is a challenge, people living in apartments are looking at the water issue.
Take the case of Shera Square Apartments in Kodambakkam. Three bore wells which are about 200-300 feet deep provide its residents with ground water.
But this season, one of the bore well has failed to provide water. And the team which manages the affairs of this apartment is working out ways to address the water supply issue.
The campus also has an old water pump which is used during an emergency; it has come in handy when power is off for long hours or when the area is flooded and civic problems arise.
Residents in the apartments are now asked to fix the leaks in their taps as soon as possible.
Wherever necessary, they are asked to use water from a jug or bucket and rather not from running the water in the taps.
This complex has implemented rain water harvesting system and people here say this has helped.
They have put up circulars in the notice boards urging people not to waste water and use water judiciously .
