Water Management through community participation

"The ground water and soil in the area is contaminated due to indiscriminate discharge of untreated /inadequately treated effluents and dumping of solid wastes from industries. According to a reliable report (IESC) another serious problem that has been noticed is the depletion of groundwater on account of over-exploitation. It is found that the units with 10 acres of floriculture have dug up an average of 4 bore wells and each well goes to about 600 feet. According to one estimate, the groundwater use is 212-acre inches per hectare, which is almost 40 times higher than the amount of water used by normal food crops like ragi. This has caused groundwater levels to go low. IMPACT 1500 Grass root workers were trained on water management 500 Village Water & Sanitation Committee members were trained on water management 250 Panchayath Raj Institution members were trained on water management Conducted water literacy programs & Competition
