CHANDIGARH: Gurgaon Deputy Commissioner Rakesh Gupta claimed on Wednesday that the water crisis in Gurgaon had ended as normal water supply had been restored in all parts of the city.

He said about one-third of the population which was fed by tube-wells was getting normal water supply during the crisis but on Wednesday the remaining two-thirds population also got tap water after four days.

Mr. Gupta said the residents of Gurgaon should learn a lesson from this crisis that water is precious. “The small crisis shook the city but what happens if the crisis aggravates due to over-exploitation of underground water and misuse continues?” he asked while appealing to the residents not to waste water and rather contribute to recharging the underground water by adopting water harvesting measures.
