This Juxtapose shows gradual drying up of the Puzhal Lake reservoir in Chennai, India, between February 2014 and August 2017. As one of four rain-fed reservoirs serving the city of nearly 5 million, Puzhal Lake’s water levels have been sporadic in recent years due to infrequent rain. This summer, with the delayed arrival of monsoon season, Puzhal Lake is completely empty and water storage in all four lakes combined is less than one-hundredth of what it was in June of last year.
