Abstract:
"Water is the abject necessity for any kind of life to exist" - Atharva Veda
The drinking water sector in Kerala has witnessed the emergence of different efforts in the provision of safe and adequate drinking water. But the goal of providing safe and adequate drinking water to all people in all types of localities has not been achieved. The total water supply schemes of KWA in operation as on March 31, 2017 in the State is 1,073. In the recent past, community managed drinking water supply schemes have been implemented in Kerala to fill the gaps in the water supply by the state government and panchayats. While community management demands more involvement of the beneficiaries, the authority takes advantage of it to transfer the responsibility of the service to them and withdraw from the picture. Jalanidhi is a paradigm shift in the area of water resource management projects. This contains various plans and programmes for the effective and efficient usage of available water. The Jalanidhi will be success in this regard for ensuring the efficient and sustainable use of inherent water potential for the present and future generations.
