I'm having trouble with water in my city. I have four pumps and three treatment plants and it's more than enough to cover my population. I have pipes covering the entire map and my water budget's maxed out. Still, EVERYONE is abandoning due to 'Lack of Water.' How can I fix this?

  • Are all the pumps connected to the pipes? Do you have electricity reaching the pumps? – Elise Mar 15 '15 at 19:52
  • Pretty positive. – nick Mar 15 '15 at 19:55
  • Are your pipes properly connected everywhere and connected to the pumps? Maybe you accidentally have detached a pipe somewhere, creating a whole lot of pipes that aren't actually connected to the water pumps? – Elise Mar 15 '15 at 20:09
  • Are you facing electricity shortfall?Can you put up a screenshot with electricity & Water overlays? – Sathyajith Bhat Mar 15 '15 at 20:17

You need to have enough water being pumped, as well as sewage. Note the consumption is less than capacity in both water and sewage, seen here:

You also need to make sure your pipes are connected to the buildings, denoted by a darker blue coloring in the water view, seen here:

If either of these are not true, you will see the No Water notification pop up on a building.

  • Bad connection. Got it taken care of. Thanks everyone. – nick Mar 15 '15 at 23:44

My answer to you is 11 months too late, but I hope this'll help others as well. My problem was that I had two different places for sewage and water pumping and I hadn't connected two of those places. That's why people in other island were complaining about not having enough water in their buildings.
