Water with rain drops

Water

Water is perhaps the most basic resource. Yet, in many parts of the world, it is an extremely scarce and hence a most valuable resource. Water is backbone of socio-economic development of the land.  No life of any kind can survive on this earth without water.  Though it is a renewable resource, the availability of required quantity of water confirming to requisite quality at a given place may be limited.  Water resource planning and development has traditionally been project oriented. Water demands in a watershed are grouped as drinking / domestic, agricultural, industrial and infrastructural demands.  Apart from these four major categories water demands arise in other fields of regional and national planning, such as transportation, recreation, preservation.

Waste Water

Waste water is anywater that has been adversely affected in quality by anthropogenic influence.  Wastewater can originate from a combination of domestic, industrial, commercial or agricultural activities, surface runoff or stormwater and from sewer inflow or infiltration.  In India during 1995 the Green Revolution was followed by Industrial revolution to attain self sufficiency. This led to the setting up of a large number of wastewater generating industries especially in the vicinity of big cities. However, the waste disposal practices were not well defined. As a result, vast stretches of land have become dumping ground for solid as well as liquid effluents generated from these industries.
