Tirthes Kumar Sharma, Sippy Dassani and Nikhil Agnihotri


Considering the scarcity of potable water with respect to the ever increasing population of India, conservation of water resources is very essential in India. The availability of fresh and potable water in India is very poor as compared to the rest of the world. Increasing level of water pollution is a matter of concern for India. The issue of water pollution in India is so serious that it is very important that a number of precautionary measures must be taken to prevent and control the pollutants into aquatic ecosystems. Treatment of out flowing wastewater should be made compulsory for all organizations and companies that let the hazardous and chemical discharge into the surface water resources that are used further by living beings. Inputs of pollutants such as phosphorus, nitrogen, chromium etc. and pesticides and insecticides from agricultural activities to water bodies should be checked in all possible manners. On the other hand, constructive usage of wastewater is vital for control of water pollution. Hence, conservation of fresh water resources and management and constructive usage of wastewater is the need of the hour in order to fight a tough battle for saving the environment. The present study deals with the ways of water resources conservation and affirmative methods of wastewater management to preserve the sustainability of our valuable environment.
