Water stewardship is an approach predicated on the concept that water is a shared resource and so water risks are also shared risks that everyone in a catchment will face

Water, its use, availability, and impact on people has been on the public policy debate centerstage for the past several years. In India, a growing water crisis driven by climate change, inefficiency, and water pollution is slowly moving to a near-permanent state that will harm the country’s people, economy and environment.

Despite being the lifeline of India’s water supplies, groundwater is overlooked by policy makers and users alike.

A majority of India’s water problems are those relating to groundwater—water that is found beneath the earth’s surface. This is because we are the largest user of groundwater in the world, and therefore highly dependent on it.

The building where I am staying consists of 14 flats. I am staying in 2nd floor approved flat and water supply to my flat has been stopped stating that 2nd and 3rd floor unapproved flats are not getting water when overhead tank is filled and let out. Instead they illegally used a hose directly from the motor and let out water in the first floor. What legal action can I take against these people who are causing me trouble and nuisance by stopping water supply to my apartment. All the pipelines from the overhead tanks are concealed.

While enough of its water needs are taken care of by water supply from the Khadakwasla dam, the use of groundwater to meet the needs of the population continues to increase.

We have 235 feet borewell at home and we use texmo compression motor to pump. We observed that the water is not pumped up to the water tank from past few days. We could see meagre water in tank even if motor is running for more than an hour. We already had a borewell with 90ft depth and since there was no water, we installed new one last year with a depth of 235ft after checking with experts. We did not face any issues till date and the electrician has checked the motor and confirmed no issues with it.

Then we put new pump of 20 hp and that also got damaged after 10-12 days & bore got punctured and water of upper table got mix in borewell which is of 2500 TDS. After 15-20 days bore got repaired and puncture done and we put 12 HP 12 stage pump but still it is throwing sand and TDS is still 1800. Actual tds at that level is 300.
