Demand for reconsideration of law
According to the Equitable Water Distribution Act, 2005, the Act was passed to release water from dams in the city and Nashik district considering the water storage of Jayakwadi Dam. But now this law is being opposed and there is a demand from the city and Nashik district that this law should be reconsidered. This year, a total of 410 mm of rain has been received in the city district during the rainy season, in which the rainfall is more in the dam area and less in the benefit area. Drought has been declared in 96 revenue boards in 12 talukas of the district today and in the month of November water is being supplied by tankers to one place in Sangamner and eight places in Pathardi taluka.
Agriculture in Nashik district along with the city is likely to be endangered
Ahmednagar district is the largest district in terms of area and three main dams namely Mula, Bhandardara and Nilwande are planned for agriculture and drinking water. These three dams, which were 100 percent in the month of November last year, have low water storage and planning for the coming year is a big challenge, if water is released to Jaikavadi, there is a possibility that agriculture in Nashik district along with the city will be in danger.
