Damage of water pipelines due to landslides can be tackled by creating quick action plans and alternative sustainable sources.

Nagaland depends on surface sources such as streams, rivulets, springs and ponds, which are monsoon fed for its drinking water. However, the quantity of water in these sources has depleted across the state. This could be due to deforestation, jhum cultivation and other human intervention. Destruction of forest cover has also affected the water retention capacity of areas resulting in increased surface runoff. This triggers landslides, which damage property, pipelines and roads.
