The Chennai city is still facing acute shortage of drinking water. Several hotels and hostels have remained closed as managements are unable to get water. Software companies are asking employees to work from the residence until the water supply situation improves. The main reason for the shortage of water is the construction of buildings by encroaching lands. According to reports, 1.5 lakh structures were built in the lands belonging to 300 ponds in and around Chennai. The Chennai Municipal Corporation failed to assess water requirement for the fast-growing city.
