About this book

Water is a precious natural resource which is crucial to our survival. It needs to be used judiciously in the context of an increasing population not only to sustain essential requirements such as those for drinking and domestic usage, but also for increased food production, industrial usage, power generation, navigational requirements, pisciculture, recreation, landscaping etc.

This book deals with small-scale development of water resources consistent with the environmental concerns as well as application of relevant eco-friendly technologies.
