However, Brookefield suffers from water shortage especially during summer months as the whole region relies almost entirely on groundwater. With increase in housing and office space, the demand has been multiplying over the years and groundwater depletion has been worsening alarmingly. BWSSB is expected to supply the region with the execution of Cauvery Water Supply Scheme Stage IV, Phase II. BWSSB has been granted 1000 crore for various water projects in 2012 including supplying water to areas of Greater Bangalore which includes Brooke Field.
