Mandalay is experiencing a shortage of drinking water due to prolonged power outages. In Mandalay City, the residents of the urban area on the border of the Municipal Development Committee often use the water provided by the municipality, but now they are given water for a limited time, while the residents of the new town who rely on water from the Awisei well are also facing the problem of not being able to get water due to power outages.
When the water came on electricity access, the civilians were carrying it. The water reservoir is small and runs out of water quickly. If there’s no water, we can’t do anything, so we use water sparingly. Social assistance groups are donating water. Due to the increasing demand for water in Mandalay, we have to donate 15,000 to 20,000 gallons of water almost every day.
Therefore, in addition to the difficulty of drinking water, due to rising temperatures, children, Elderly and unhealthy people are suffering from the heat and due to long blackouts, social, health. They are also facing economic problems.
