India is seriously facing a sustained water crisis. Extreme demand, coupled with poorly managed water resources, subtle climate patterns and climate change, have led to a sad state of affairs. The Indian States are continuously facing issues of the waters of the Narmada in the Midwest, the Yamuna in the North, and the Cauvery in the South.
There is not a single State that is facing this issue. According to the report, few Indian States are running out of the water and leaving a big question of how to get drinking water over time.
In this article, we have discussed a few primary states that are facing drinking water issues, and in coming years the situation will become more worst.
As everyone is familiar with the fact that Bengaluru is the Silicon Valley of India. With the rapid development of new buildings, apartments, and unplanned urbanization leading to stressed water resources. Due to the many new constructions in nearby areas of Electronic City, Peenya, and Sarjapura Road, Bengaluru is now facing a significant issue concerning drinking water. Also, the beautiful lakes in Bengaluru have now filled with industrial effluents and other sewage.
Due to the semi-arid condition and presence of heavy metallurgical elements in the water of Rajasthan, creating a big issue of drinking water. It is making difficult for people to survive without the drinking water. Also, the groundwater of Rajasthan is over-exploited as they do not have any direct access to safe surface water sources. People of Rajasthan are dependent upon the groundwater. The crisis of drinking water is due to the following three significant reasons, such as Scanty and inconsistent rainfall, drought-prone, and minimal sources of surface water. In the coming years, the condition of Rajasthan will be worse than this.
From last few years, Maharashtra is also facing a water crisis. And it is bizarre to believe the fact that this state own natural minerals and resources, but still is facing such significant issues. Not only rainfall and drought is the reason behind it but also the mismanagement of water and their funds. More importantly, the changes in the cropping pattern have added more reason for this. Loss of crops and growing debt lead to tension among the farmers. And State government has failed to implement any proper crop management within Maharashtra which can lead to a better situation.
Delhi demands the highest water among all the States in India. The situation in Delhi is worse than anything. In Delhi, the government supplies only 3,156 million liters of water against the demand of 4,158 million liters. According to the records, some cities also get adequate water. Besides tube wells, Delhi receives drinking water supply from three rivers, Bhakhra, Ganga, and the Yamuna.
Still, There are many States / Cities are yet to come in this List. So please guys don’t waste water and utilize every drop of waters. As we know in India only there are more % of youngsters in this world. so if youngest thought about water Crisis then easily we can stabilize it.
