Water: The Epic Struggle for 21st Century
B.C. Jat
Water nurtures life, without which human beings would perish. It has acquired a new meaning beyond its traditional uses for irrigation, navigation, municipal, industrial and hydropower. It has come to be associated with a certain kind of life style-entertainment, sports, and leisure. Yet water shortages are already a fact of life for millions of people around the world. Indeed, estimates predict severe water scarcity and related crises by 2030. Water demands are increasing, ground water levels are decreasing, surface water supplies are increasingly contaminated, and delivery and treatment infra-structures are aging. This book will give you the real picture of what’s happening on the earth with regard to water availability, consuming pattern, increasing demand, scaring water resources and management strategy for twenty first century. It is hope that the book will be of immense help to scholars of Geography & environment, researchers, analysts, academicians, policy makers and implementers. ..more

Water Resources and their Utilisation
S. C. KalwarA. Kamboj
"Water is one of the basic resources of mankind and is vital to all forms of life. Water is a biological necessity and is also of great economic significance. This being one of the basic necessities of life, Government has come out with various programmes of the supply of drinking water. The piped water supply is an economical proposition for areas with high population density. But the problem of safe drinking water assumes serious proportion when the efforts relate to the large rural populations scattered over a vast area including isolated and inaccessible habitations. This book tries to asses water resources and then utilisation in rural areas. It discusses the water resource potentiality and its utilization pattern, problem of water quality, water supply for domestic use and agriculture, impact of droughts on water supply, planning and management for sustainable development of water resources in rural areas. This book is useful for Public Health Engineering Departments, State and Central Ground Water Board, Agricultural Departments, Planners, Non-Government Organisations, Research scholars of Geography, Geology and other allied disciplines." ..more

Indian Forests-Soil, Water and Bio-environment Conservation
Sheelwant Patel
Indian Forests—Soil, Water and Bio-environment Conservation—deals with the soil degradation in forests from a practising forester’s viewpoint. Most past practices believed civil engineers’ gravity structures as the panacea for the problem. This book proceeds with a different premise—earth reinforcement through root systems of vegetation best protects soil and conserves water. In elaborating this, it presents a simplified picture of Indian forest types and characteristics like soil formation, soil texture, soil organisms, etc. For the first time, it presents a cross profile of forest vegetation across the country connecting it with prominent civil locations. Among various degrading factors, it deals with forest fires, over-grazing and different forms of soil erosion. For the first time, it flags faulty disposal of rainwater along hill roads as a menace to soil degradation. It classifies shifting cultivators in three categories—solely dependent, partially dependent and marginally dependent—probes the issue in depth and advocates, for the first time, differential treatment for them. A full chapter on landslides analyses causative factors—geomorphological, seismological, hydrological—in detail and provides the latest techniques to handle the problem. Another chapter on ameliorative soil and water conservation measures views the issue from a tree man’s point of view. Vegetative tools of foresters display their full potential here. This chapter, too, includes many firsts—jhora training in meandering streams, municipal watershed management and concept of infiltration belts for ground water recharging. Yet another chapter provides recent advances—root trainer nurseries, geo-textiles as tools of soil conservation and hydro seeding and hydro mulching as techniques of slope reclamation. The last chapter on peoples’ participation views the whole issue from a sociologist’s viewpoint. There are many firsts in this chapter, too, —vision of stakeholders; distributive justice and people’s participation; co-operative behaviour in view of effective communication, super ordinate goal, coalescing of groups, risk of initiator; criterion for selection of success indicators; monitoring of achievements through response indicators, habitat indicators, stress indicators, institutional process indicators, etc. Many of the methodologies described in this book come directly from adaptive field applications of various conservation principles and practices developed in other parts of the world. A must-read book for every conservationist. ..more

Water Resource Management and Policy Perspectives
V. P. Sati
Water resource management is a comprehensive term at the present sphere of time when acute shortage of water prevails everywhere. In the global context, the Middle East Asian countries have been facing this problem for long, but the areas where mammoth freshwater reservoirs existed in the past are now facing similar problems. The sources of freshwater on the earth in the form of glaciers, rivers, natural pools, lakes, wells and groundwater are receding at an alarming rate. Receding groundwater table and over-use of surface freshwater for drinking and irrigation purposes, due to population explosion, posed severe impediments and resulted in acute problem of water. Further, with the continuous increase in water pollution, the freshwater reservoirs cannot be used for drinking purposes. If this trend continues, it would create problems for the very survival of living beings. It is the need of the hour to conserve water resources as a need base by implementing national policies and planning. This book sets the pace for discussing all aspects of water management. Water Resource Management and Policy Perspectives is unique in the sense that it leads to way for further research, policy making and will be helpful for those working in the field of water management. It has 19 chapters divided into two parts. The first part relates to water, the water cycle and water management; water sources and uses; water quality and properties; chemical properties; the examination of water; water supply purification; groundwater; industrial and commercial requirements and cooling water. In the second part, national water policies; development of irrigation facilities; accelerated irrigation benefits programme (AIBP); command area development programme; external assistance for development of water resources; international co-operation; inter-state water disputes tribunal; other important issues related to water resources development and management; initiatives in the northeast region and national water development agencies have been discussed in detail. ..more

Water Resource Management in India : Problems & Prospects
Ashu JainNarendra Shukla
Water is a unique substance. It is one of the few materials on the Earth that exists naturally as a solid, liquid or gas. It is not possible for life on earth to exist without water. Scientists estimate that there are over one billion cubic kilometers of water on this earth, which covers nearly ¾ of the earth’s surface. Though this seems an inordinately huge amount, in actual fact, less than 1% is fresh and usable and is found in lakes, ponds, rivers and groundwater. Of the remaining, 97% is found in oceans and 2% is locked up in glaciers and ice-caps. In present scenario the whole world is suffering from the problem of ‘lacking of water resource’. As we know the water resource is totally free from nature that’s why we are not worried about the precious gift of nature, which is obviously water. There are a lot of challenges that are untouched and unseen. The challenges have to be overviewed and looked in for safe future. There is not any single supplement of water, nothing can replace it. Nature has given us everything we need. Now its our turn to repay it as soon as it is possible. The present book contains 15 different research articles which cover the major aspect of Water Resource Management in India. It is hoped that this book will be highly useful to students, scholars, professors, planners and policy makers. ..more

Water : Todays Need - Tomorrow's Vision
Narendra ShuklaAshu Jain
OF all the planet’s renewable resources, water has a unique place. Water is one of the five basic elements (Earth, Water, Air, Atmosphere and Fire) from which creation emanates. Water, a renewable resource is undoubtedly one of the most vital requirements for all the living beings. Many a time this five-letter word (Water) has become a hot topic for discussion. India’s water crisis is predominantly a manmade problem. India’s climate is not particularly dry, nor is it lacking in rivers and groundwater. Extremely poor management, unclear laws, government corruption, and industrial and human waste have caused this water supply crunch and rendered what water is available practically useless due to the huge quantity of pollution. In managing water resources, the Indian government must balance competing demands between urban and rural, rich and poor, the economy and the environment. However, because people have triggered this crisis, by changing their actions they have the power to prevent water scarcity from devastating India’s population, agriculture, and economy. The present book contains 15 different research articles in which it is our endeavor to cover the major aspect of present status and future requirement of Water Resources in India. It is hoped that the book will be highly useful for students, scholars, professors, planners and policy makers. ..more

Water Pollution : Assessment, Modelling and Management
Asha Gupta
Rapid population growth, increasing urbanization, industrialization, commercial and residential developments and intensive agricultural practices have resulted in increase in production of domestic and industrial sewage, agricultural runoff, fertilizers and insecticides leading to the degradation of surface and groundwater quality adversely affecting human health and the natural environment. Once contaminated it becomes necessary to regularly monitor the quality of water and to devise ways and means to protect and manage it for ensuring better livelihoods and sustainable development. Specific contaminants leading to pollution in water include a range of of chemicals, pathogens, and physical changes such as elevated temperature. Problems caused by the increase of pollutant loads discharged into natural water bodies require regulation based on assessment of scientific results that relate pollutant discharge with changes in water quality. Understanding of the interdisciplinary nature of a wide range of issues including the physical processes of mixing and dilution, chemical and biological processes, data acquisition and measurement, involved in water quality modelling help in taking appropriate management decisions. The book covers variety of topics viz., Water pollution : sources effects and control; Adverse performance of hydropower projects due to chemical nature of water; Ecological stress on the diversity of aquatic flora and fauna; Toxicity of ammonium perchlorate waste water fish Tilapia massambica; Toxicity of chlorinated pesticides on vital organs of fish Puntius tiato; Impact of heavy metal contamination of industrial waste water on cultivated vegetables; Distribution of heavy metals in lake sediments; Rate of reparian vegetation in pollution abatement, Water equality analysis of community ponds; Comparative assessment of ground water; Effects of elevated temperatures on phytoplankton population, Environmetric models in the assessment of surface water quality; Investigation on the physico chemical parameters of tropical river; Ground water arsenic contamination; application of mathematical models in aquatic pollution assessment. Chapter on affect of carbon sources on the biomass build-up and degradation of rubber processing industing effluent have added value to the book. Thus the book provides a glimpse of water pollution studies involving assessment of a wide range of data and interdisciplinary processes so as to apply for more efficient methods of water pollution modelling and management.  ..more
