Dry dams portend looming distress

The climate crisis is changing the monsoon pattern and leading to short bursts of heavy rain rather than extended rainfall across the season

Beed, India. Mar 29,2024 : A man was seen walking on a dry lake at Chandapur village in Beed district. Due to the lack of rain in the state this year, the water level in many lakes in Marathwada has decreased. In the next few months, Marathwada is expected to face a shortage of water. More than 70% of Maharashtra's talukas are facing a drought. As temperatures soar with summer approaching, a water crisis is looming with the live water storage in the state's dams down. The arid Marathwada region has the lowest dam water storage, down to 21.3% of capacity compared with 46% at this time last year. Mar 29,2024. (Photo by Raju Shinde/HT Photo)
