Abstract

Water, the generous gift of nature, is sure to become scarce unless the ever-growing population is enlightened enough in handling the increasing stress and to avoid the crisis due to the expanding demand on this precious commodity. Management of water and its resources by conservation and its judicious use help to preserve the available water. Even then, whether it is from surface or underground sources, it has become impossible to obtain good quality water for human consumption. Thus, the dwindling quantity and lessening quality of water require effective steps to be taken urgently for the sustenance of the living beings of today and tomorrow.
