Chennai - No Can Drinking Water as Packaging Units on Strike | When will Chennai City Water Can Drinking water Supply Starts | Chennai Can Water Suppliers Today Approved Vendors

· Posted in ,

Over 309 ISI certified packaged drinking water units belonging to TN Packaged Drinking Water Manuf­acturers Association (TNDWMA) have stopped production since Wednesday, protesting the closure of 103 units in Ch­ennai, Kancheepuram and Tiruvallur by TNPCB (TN Pollution Control Board) for not obtaining pollution control license.

Chennaiites rely solely on packaged drinking water owing to uncertainty over supply from the fast depleting city reservoirs, which only store 2.6tmcft, against total joint storage of 11.057tmcft.

TNDWMA on Thursday petitioned the CM to drop the charges against the 103 units and relax the rule making it mandatory to avail TNPCB license.

With 20 lakh households depending on packaged water people across the city, began stocking up on all the bubbletop cans still available in the market. The city consumes around 70 lakh litres of packaged water every day. 

Chennai Metrowater supplies the city 810 million litres of water a day, but many families rely on packaged water for their drinking requirements.
