The water crisis is booming large, Despite the early warnings received by the world bank. The world bank had said in 2010 “Today, 29 percent of groundwater blocks are semi-critical, critical or overexploited, and the situation is deteriorating rapidly.” It was also estimated by 2015, 60% of India’s groundwater blocks will face a critical condition. Also, the weather condition would affect the groundwater blocks.
But adding another clinch, that recent stats say that water could be imported in just thirty years. In early stats, it shows us that during 1951, availability of 14, 180 liters of groundwater per person per day. In 2001 it’s reduced to 35% base year now, reaching 5,120 liters of ground water per person per day. if these numbers are just not enough here is another clinch that we might not left be with no option but to import drinking water by 2050.
There can be taken some measures to save our groundwater and the best example is Andhra Pradesh which showed the largest self-regulation of groundwater.
