India faces daunting water security challenges. The demands of a rapidly industrializing economy and urbanizing society come at a time when the potential for augmenting supply is limited and water issues have increasingly come to the fore. While India hosts approximately 17 percent of the world’s population, it holds only about four percent of its required annual water resources.
Water is a limited resource and it is currently being monopolized in an unregulated manner. The general perception is that freshwater can only be used once. A conscious thought must be given to recycling or reusing the same water for multiple purposes.
