Water scarcity and top end hotels in Madras

How are the 5-star hotels in Madras responding to the water scarcity in the city? Are there any restrictions placed on guests?

Most, if not all the 5-star hotels in the city buy water (by the tanker load) for all their requirements. And this has been the case for a long while. I guess the cost at which the hotels are buying this water has probably gone up a fair bit in light of the city-wide crisis.
