While the drinking water crisis continues to be a problem in certain districts, Udupi has come up with an initiative to address these challenges. 

The Baje dam which has been crucial in providing drinking water to Udupi has water levels of only 6.10 meters at the moment, which is indeed a dire picture suggesting an emerging water crisis. 

One of the reasons for this is the 25 percent shortage of annual rainfall. If this continues, parched villages may soon have to depend on water tankers, as in previous cases  of water crisis in recent years. This can indeed result in a lot of expenditure. 

Direct administrative officials have stated that the situation is at the moment, under control. Udupi has been identifying areas that are facing scarcity and have recently not come across any instance of water shortage.

However, in spite of that, administrative units are doing their best to gather crucial data from concerned authorities like the city municipality of Udupi, as well as municipalities of Byndoor, Kundapur and Karkala. These units have also been getting in touch with gram panchayats of the different villages.
