A water crisis has hit villages around Kasauli. Villagers living in the precincts of Kasauli town usually got water supply on alternate days. Now, they are not getting water even after three days mainly due to an acute paucity of field staff to run water schemes. Water availability has declined with a steep rise in population. Palatial resorts, which have sprung up at every nook and corner, have added to the demand. A majority of these use groundwater to meet their needs while in the absence of new potable water schemes the residents are suffering.
