The Chennai Metro City residents are struggling to cope up with the acute drinking water shortage!  Several complaints are received that some of the residents are not even able to book the mobile water supply operated by Chennai Metro Water!

There is another type of complaint especially from T Nagar residents though there is oly a single connection to the entire building for water supply, charges were being collected individually from flat owners.

One of the resients explained his personal experience of having to wait for as long as 20 days for a tanker load booked online! This has led to unfortunate precautionary action by the residents who end to book for the next supply even as the booked one is being supplied!

MWSSB (Chennai Metro Water Supply and Sewerage Board officials explained in this regard that around 7000 mobile trips were operated daily. However, frequent booking from the same source is discouraged in the present conditions. A gap of 10 days is necessary after the delivery of the booking and delivery of the previous one.
