Shimla, India, faces growing water crisis, drought
from Storm Water Soultions
On May 20, water supplies in the mountain tourist town of Shimla, India, ran dry. The city's 172,000 residents have been forced to queue to receive a daily allowance of drinking water stored in large tankers by the local government. As even bottled water becomes scarce, some residents have turned to the so-called "tanker mafia," suppliers of water drawn from boreholes sold at a steep cost.
