THis article looks at the devastating impacts of dams, barrages and hydrological modifications on the fisheries sector in India

More than 10.86 million Indians depend on rivers, wetlands, floodplains, estuaries, ponds and tanks for subsistence and market-based fisheries. Though the absolute contribution of riverine fisheries may not be huge in economic terms, it is a very crucial component in livelihood and nutritial security of the rural poor. With declining health of rivers, riverine fisheries are declining and collapsing rapidly. This is indeed worrisome and needs to be ameliorated.

Hi,

The borewell in our apartment is contaminated. I wanted to understand if there is any means through which this water can be purified for atleast domestic use like washing, kitchen and bathroom purposes. The water is slight yellowish in color and has a bad smell.

I have gone through various queries regarding borewell contamination, but nothing suits this problem. There is no septic tank near by the borewell. The ground water table is itself contaminated. Near to my apartment another person dug a borewell which also has the same contaminted water.
