  • (1888PressRelease) December 17, 2011 - India - This is an anomaly considering that with four per cent of the world's freshwater resources, India is among the top 10 water rich countries. Also, barring South America, India receives the highest average rainfall in the world.

    The country is facing unprecedented challenges on the water front. Rainfall is getting limited and monsoon patterns are getting disturbed in several areas. Availability of water in our rivers and lakes is decreasing rapidly, also due to climate change. Water pollution is on the rise, with the polluted water not immediately getting available for beneficial uses.

    Overexploitation of groundwater in India is rampant and 60 per cent of all aquifers in the country run the risk of runing dry in 20 years or will be in a critical condition. In short, we are running out of water.

    The need of the hour is to have a check on all such activities that are responsible for increase in water scarcity. Government and Indian industry need to work hand-in-hand to meet the water challenge in years ahead. Government needs to encourage a culture of conservation and create a policy framework that allows the Indian industry to constant invest in new technologies that help reduce, recharge and reuse water.

    Companies too need to be conscious of water usage. Indian water industry needs to gear up according to the situation at hand. Already several companies are helping in substituting alternate water sources such as grey water, treated wastewater, brackish water for non-potable usage, such as street washing, gardening, landscaping, cultivation, forestry etc.

    Several others are entering the Indian market to offer their world class services, technologies and management expertise and many Indian states have opened their doors wide for them. The Indian water industry is going through its best phase ever with public investments in creation of additional water infrastructure going up by the day and several local governments allowing the private sector to recover their project costs without any risks involved.

    With so much action happening on the water front, there is hardly any worthwhile media activity in terms of coverage and dissemination of news and information about the most precious resource.

    India Water Review ( hopes to fill this void by offering a huge and growing online database of news and information regarding water industry in India. is an India-focussed news website on the water industry that tracks and report on the domestic and regional water/wastewater/water management and services sectors from policy, corporate and environmental perspectives.
