IPL Water Crisis: MCA tells court it will use sewage water for maintaining pitches
In the PIL hearing against holding IPL matches in drought-hit Maharashtra, MCA has filed an affidavit stating that it will only use recycled sewage water provided by Royal Western Indian Turf Club (RWITC) for maintaining the grounds.
The affidavit also mentions that MCA has analyzed the water requirement and believe that the water provided by RWITC will suffice their requirements.
It also said that by using recycled water instead of potable, it will help tackle water crisis.
Even for matches scheduled in Pune, recycled sewage water will be used.
Other than the opening match in Mumbai’s Wankhede, a total of 19 other matches were scheduled to take place in the state.
Update: New reports are suggesting that Kings XI Punjab, which is scheduled to play 3 matches in Nagpur, is willing to shift them to Mohali.
