PMC supply falls short, airport struggles to meet daily water demand

Pune: Pune Airport that is eyeing an international tag with more facilities and passenger movement, is facing water crisis as the supply it receives from the Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) is not enough to cater to the 25,000-odd passengers that visit it everyday. The airport has to rely on water tankers to meet the demand.

According to the Airports Authority of India (AAI), Pune airport, a civil enclave, has seen tremendous growth in terms of passenger movement and has generated revenue and, in fact, even topped with regards to several parameters in the Western Region of the AAI in the last quarter.

AAI officials said presently, the airports gets about 35 thousand litres of water from the PMC, which is not enough for the 22,466 passengers (as per the Environmental Status Report presented by the PMC) who visit the airport every day. The actual water demand for the airport is 1.2 lakh litres per day.
