Springs exist in the most biodiverse regions of the country and anchor entire ecosystems. That fact must be respected while undertaking springs conservation work.

"If you do good work on the ground, policy will happen", says Himanshu Kulkarni of ACWADAM. This has proven to be in true at least in the case of springs. Nearly three decades of research and ground work on spring conservation has convinced the government and development workers of the importance of springs for rural water security. This awareness has led to an increased interest in spring conservation benefiting villagers across India.

Tribal communities in remote villages of the Eastern Ghats now have water round the clock due to a simple water system that uses no electricity.

Vanajakshi, a 21 year old girl from Gondipakalu in Chintapalle Mandal, Andhra Pradesh, recalls that, growing up, she was often late to school. It wasn’t because she was having trouble waking up. It was because she had to accompany her mother to fetch water, and that took up around 2.5 hours every morning.

Vanajakshi's reason wasn’t unique to her.
