The results of Dr. Chitale Committee Report about the Development of Water Supply Resource MMR made MMRDA to take action to develop the water resources in order to resolve the demand for fresh and safe drinking water in the Region.

For the Water Resources Development, MMRDA initiated the Kalu and Shai Water Supply Project to improve the water supply in the Easter-Sub Region of MMR, including Bhiwandi, Kalyan- Dombivali, Kulgaon-Badalapur Municipal Corporations, Thane, Kalyan-Dombivali, Ulhasnagar and Thane.
