Water Problem in HUDA Sectors

Due to increasing temperature and heat, demand of water has gone up very high in all sectors of HUDA as well as other areas. Few reason behind water shortage :-

- Long power cuts (Situation has gone from bad to worst due to long power cuts because tube wells do not have hotline power supply)

- Wastage of water (on cleaning of cars, corridors, house, etc.)

- Decreasing of ground water level

- Too much over extraction

- Non implementation of Rain Water Harvesting schemes

In last few decades we have wasted water like anything and neither follow the rules nor taken the initiative to recharge ground water. Due to modernization we have created big concrete jungle and left no open space so that ground water recharge takes place when rain comes. Actually rain water harvesting has not been implemented with strict enforcement. The best way to recharge the ground water is to make provision for rain water harvesting in every household and it must be a condition when government agencies give their permission to construction the house. For existing residential areas government should invite NGO and RWA to start applying method of rain harvesting.

Still if we did not awake and don't stop wastage of water in coming 2-3 decades we may not have the water and the city will become like a desert.
