Mumbai faces acute water shortage
"The authorities in the Indian city of Mumbai (Bombay) have reduced water supplies by 30% as it faces one of the worst water shortages in its history. The cuts will affect supplies to hundreds of thousands of households as well as hospitals and hotels. Most lakes that supply water to Indian cities are heavily dependent on monsoon rainfall which this year has been intermittent, officials say. Mumbai is India's most populated city and its commercial and film-making hub. But now correspondents say its 20 million inhabitants face an acute water shortage for the first time in living memory. The drought in Maharashtra in the west comes as half a million people have been stranded as rivers burst their banks due to flooding in the north-eastern state of Assam."
