About 15 percent of India’s population depends on spring water from mountains. But over one-third of these springs are drying up, endangering water security of the people dependent on the springs.
The newly formed Jal Shakti ministry has now come out with a framework document which highlights the urgent need to revive springs and calls for focused spring rejuvenation programmes.
The document suggests steps like mapping of springs, identification of recharge areas and sites for construction of appropriate recharge structures.
