Emerging Ground Water Crisis in India and its Solution
Volume: 12 Issue: 4 2022
There is a total of 1,46,00,000 cubic kilometers of water present on the earth. Out of this, 97 percent is in the oceans, which is not useful for us due to being saline, and 1.6 percent is under the water and 0.001 percent is in the form of vapor and clouds and other glaciers and mountain peaks are in the form of ice. Even in this minimum quantity of available water, the question mark of quality is being raised at some places and the life of every living being found on earth depends on water. Hence its availability is absolutely necessary. The free or free gift of nature, which we consider water, is not free but a valuable gift. So we should understand that every drop of water is precious. If we do not use and conserve and manage water judiciously, then our very existence will be threatened. Thus, in view of the increasing water pollution and the lack of water quality, many types of campaigns and programs have been run by the government from time to time, out of which Heli-Born Survey technology, 'Jal Shakti Abhiyan: Catch the Rain' campaign on World Water Day 2022, 'Bhujal Badhao Payjal Bachao' (Enhance Ground Water, Protect Drinking Water) Limca Book of Records in February 2020 is the main campaigns to improve the quality of groundwater. The Union Minister, Dr. Jitendra Singh launched the state of the art Heli-Born Survey Technology on October 5, 2021.
