According to this study, implementing a watershed management programme in water scarce areas can lead to both improved water availability and health outcomes.

Declining groundwater levels and increasing stress on water resources in rural areas in India is a major concern for development since the livelihoods of a majority of the rural population depends on agriculture and the availability of sustainable water resources. More productive use of rainwater is necessary to help mitigate the impact of water scarcity.

In all the housing societies in Mumbai & Thane cities the car is washed using borewell water. Over a period of time it leaves a heavy stain on car windows which is difficult to remove.

I have tried many stain removers but all in vain. The car service centres also do not have a solution to this problem and they have suggested to stop using borewell water or reduce the frequency of car wash to once a week from daily. 

Is there any sure-shot solution to get rid of these stains?
