Deficient, Normal, Surplus - Monsoon in Maharashtra has various offerings

July 3, 2016 8:08 AM |


Monsoon is currently lashing good rains at various places across the country. But it has been a while that Monsoon has been relentless over entire Maharashtra. Many parts of the state received heavy to very heavy rainfall in the coastal Maharashtra region of Konkan & Goa. But the story is not same for different regions of Maharashtra.

The residents of Nasik, Jalgaon and Dhule in North Madhya Maharashtra are still waiting for good Monsoon showers. Farmers in the region are not sowing their seeds due to the fear of another drought. After facing 2 consecutive years of drought farmers are apprehensive about sowing for the season.

Whereas in comparison, a flood like situation persists in Mumbai with the increasing heavy rainfall. Marathwada is another region to receive good rainfall. At present the region is rainfall surplus by 4%. And Vidarbha is 2% rain surplus. The coastal region of Konkan & Goa is whopping 23% rain surplus.

But Madhya Maharashtra is one region that is lagging behind to keep up pace with the Monsoon rains. At present, the region is 28% rainfall deficient. The water in reservoirs is less than 10%.

In one of the wicked scenarios Mumbai’s water reservoirs are at less than 20% due to scanty rains in the region. So even with surplus rainfall in Mumbai, there may be a time in the near future when Mumbai may face water scarcity issues.
