Water scarcity is set to be a menacing problem in India without the immediate implementation of proper corrective measures. India largely depends on its groundwater resources for water supply, and there is intense pressure on this sole resource. The pressure of urbanity in highly populated cities is already evident in water scarcity in many places. High-rises and slums alike need water to survive, and so the pressure is severe. Added to this is the water requirement of industries crowding the urban scenario. Plus, in the surrounding villages near the cities draw out groundwater for agriculture and livelihood. All these activities put immense pressure on groundwater, which is dwindling away at a rate faster than it is getting refilled. All these factors points out to the mandatory need for implementation of water harvesting techniques. This includes two broad parameters, groundwater and rainwater management. The monsoon rains provide the supply of groundwater. In seasons, when monsoon is scarce, groundwater levels plummet substantially. In extreme situations, draught situations may develop. Cities cannot get much of the monsoon rain to store as groundwater. The concrete of the cityscape does not absorb water, and a lot of the rainwater just wastes. The wastewater problem is also a huge issue. Public consciousness on water consciousness is yet to develop and a huge number of roadside taps do not have any faucets at all. Water comes out and wastes indiscriminately. Implementation of water conservation The water from heavens There are several aspects of groundwater management. The key focus is to recycle water and make it easily available for everyone. Identification of aquifers using advanced hydrogeological instruments is important for proper mapping and usage of groundwater. This water is also important for agricultural purposes. So, a proper plan must be in place defining agricultural use and personal use of the water resource. The combination of rainwater and groundwater can see to that India does not suffer from the impending doom of huge water scarcity.

India is one of the largest users of groundwater resources. The country largely depends on this water source for daily usages, industries, and agriculture. In fact, India’s groundwater utility is way more than China and the USA. However, due to unplanned urban growth, and huge volumes of waste water, the country is looking face to face with a groundwater scarcity scenario. At present, farmers and urban planners have to dig deeper and deeper to access the groundwater level. The situation is worsening every day. The groundwater resource largely depends on the famous Indian monsoon. However, with intense climate changing pressure on the environment, India has been noticing irregular monsoons of late. Considering all these factors, implementation of groundwater management across India is the need of the hour. Macro and micro This is beneficial in every perceivable way. Besides being a vital nutrient for LIFE, you also need water for continuous sustainable industrial development. You need water for agriculture also. Ensure the implementation of latest water conservation methods to prevent the imminent water shortage. Some researchers point out to the grim fact that if proper steps do not work out, the country might be facing a situation of water anarchy not very late. Form an aqua-community Finally, in a monsoon rich country like India, rainwatestyle1bg_bottomr harvesting must receive its due importance. In cities, most of the rainwater is lost as waste water. In villages, where there are open fields, still the rainwater seeps within the ground to nourish the aquifers. The harvesting of rainwater must begin at the homes. Homeowners can manage the water supply during the monsoon through harvesting the rainwater. This involves collection, storage, treatment and recycling of the water. You need to find a service that can provide all these solutions. Look for a service with diverse industry experience and having a commitment to the society. Find the people using the most advanced methods of sustainable water conservation. The service must be able educate people on need of long-term water conservation methods like planting trees.
