Drinking Water Management
Water is absolutely essential for all living organisms. It plays a pivotal role in determining the life span of the population of a country. In economics the demand for water for production and consumption purposes, and the problems pertaining to water supply have been studied with avid interest. This area of study is usually called the economics of water management. In fact scientists who have committed themselves to the conquest of the problem of water scarcity have drawn a lot of inspiration from these studies. The book on 'Drinking Water Management : Problems and Prospects' brings to light the existing problems of drinking water supply in different parts of the world with special emphasis on Kanyakumari District, The drinking water policies we have so far followed have resulted in much wastage of our precious water resources. Government both at the centre and the states have invested a lot on drinking water programmes. There are different water managing authorities involved in implementing water schemes. In record, we have achieved significantly. Yet, there is wide variation in the quantity of water available per inhabitant. Water quality is another menace, which reduces the utility of the existing limited water resources. Water pollution tells upon not only the health of people but also other living organisms including plants. This book makes an earnest attempt to create awareness of the perennial problem of drinking water and its management.
