BENGALURU: The Bangalore Water Supply and Sewerage Board (BWSSB) has issued notices to more than 10,000 houses and Resident Welfare Associations (RWAs) across the city regarding mandatory installation of water restrictors/tap aerators.  The BWSSB official warned that if the order is not followed, suitable action will be taken.

The water board is taking various measures to alleviate the water shortage and limit the use of drinking water for  other purposes in Bengaluru. As part of this, the water board officials are issuing notices to every house and insisting on installing water flow restrictors/tap aerators in houses to reduce water wastage. They have already made door-to-door visits and issued notices in many areas, including Malleswaram, Rajajinagar and Mahadevapura.

BWSSB chairman Dr Ram Prasath Manohar noted, “We have served notices by visiting every houses. Our officials have issued about 1,500 notices till March 27 and 5,000 to 6,000 notices will be issued in the next three days. Our staff are making announcements on public announcement systems about limiting water use and creating awareness among the public. Now the public also understands the situation, and most of them are following the rules”.

The chairman warned that appropriate action will be taken if water flow restrictors or tap aerators are not installed at houses to minimise wastage of water.
