  1. 1. WATER MANAGEMENT
  2. 2. “A drop of water is worth more than a sack of gold to a thirsty man” NATURAL RESOURCES Biotic – are obtained from the biosphere such as forests and animals, and the materials that can be obtained from them. Fossil fuels , coal , petroleum etc . Abiotic – are those that come from non-living, non-organic material includes land, fresh water, air and heavy metals gold, iron, copper, silver etcRenewable resources :that can be replenished naturally. Some of these resources, like sunlight, air, wind, etc., are continuously available and their quantity is not noticeably affected by human consumption.Non-renewable resources :that form extremely slowly and those that do not naturally form in the environment. a good example of this are fossil fuels, which are in this category because their rate of formation is extremely slow.WATER MANAGEMENT -Water resources are sources of water that are useful to humans.USES OF FRESH WATER-Agricultural , Industrial , Household which mostly require fresh water.
  3. 3. “SAVE WATER – Don’t waste the world’s blood” SOME FACTS It is estimated that a quantity of 1700 cubic meters of water is required for each individual per year as per UNO If a country experiences less water per year below 1700 cubic meters, the country is said to be experiencing “WATER STRESS” If a country experiences less water per person below 1000 cubic meters, the country is said to be facing “WATER SCARCITY” At present, the per capita availability of water in India is 1706 cubic meters per person per year According to World Water Council by the Year 2025 about 48 countries with more than 2.8 billion people will be effected by “WATER STRESS” & this population could be 35% of the World Population
  4. 4. “SAVE WATER – Don’t waste the world’s blood” SOME FACTS It is estimated that a quantity of 1700 cubic meters of water is required for each individual per year as per UNO If a country experiences less water per year below 1700 cubic meters, the country is said to be experiencing “WATER STRESS” If a country experiences less water per person below 1000 cubic meters, the country is said to be facing “WATER SCARCITY” At present, the per capita availability of water in India is 1706 cubic meters per person per year According to World Water Council by the Year 2025 about 48 countries with more than 2.8 billion people will be effected by “WATER STRESS” & this population could be 35% of the World Population
  5. 5. “Walk in the desert , You will realize the cost of Water” Increasing demand for WATER The demand for water is increasing in rapid manner due to population growth and economic development. The present population of India is about 130 cores it likely to touch 150 cores by 2050By 2010: Water requirement ranges from 694 to 700 BCMBy 2025: Water requirement ranges from 784 to 850 BCMBy 2050: Water requirement ranges from 973 to 1180 BCM Hence, We have to plan for additional needs of water by undertaking new projects as well as improving the water efficiency in the existing projects.
  6. 6. “Put a Stop - to the Drop”
  7. 7. “Save water secure future” Water BodiesFresh water bodies:• Rivers• Dams• Canals• Tanks & Ponds• lakes
  8. 8. “Todays rain water is tomorrows life saver” Uses of Water Bodies Direct water supply Hydroelectricity Controlling watercourses Downstream water supply Irrigation Development of individuals and for social welfare
  9. 9. “Waste water today - Live in desert tomorrow” Need of Water Management Population growth Rapid Urbanization Control on Flood and Drought prone areas Climate change Depletion of fresh water Water Pollution
  10. 10. “our rivers 0ur lifelines”
  11. 11. “Lets Stop Polluting Water” Issues with Water in India River Pollution Ground Water Pollution Poor management of water resource Corruption and slow growth Inadequate storage capacity Water conflicts1) State-State conflicts:Krishna Dispute- Maharashtra , Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh2) Country-Country conflicts:Brahmaputra Dispute- India and China
  12. 12. “Water for Life” Future Challenges to India Interlinking of rivers Developing new projects Planning good networking of canals and distributaries Irrigation Development Utilization of water resources Rain Water harvesting Implementation of an integrated approach to water management
