World Water Day 2020 (WWS) is being celebrated with this year’s theme ‘Why Waste Water?”. Apparently, the idea is to encourage water conservation. For a country like India, this day holds special value as it has the largest rural population without access to clean drinking
Central Water Commission (CWC) monitors 91 major reservoirs across India and releases a weekly bulletin of their status. According to recent weekly update released on March 10, 2016, CWC reports the current water levels at these reservoirs is only 29 percent of their total storage
With monsoon deficit of 12 percent in 2015, many Indian states are heading towards a drought situation. Insufficient monsoon rains has left reservoirs depleted.
