Integrated water resource management plan need of the hour

JAIPUR: With seven of the 13 panchayats in Jaipur district being declared as notified area by the Central Ground Water Authority (CGWA), the officials at the ground water department say it’s about time the state strictly implements projects to recharge the groundwater level.

The state government should draw an integrated water resource management plan, and be strict in implementing the projects, an official said.

“Due to silting, water recharge is not possible in a natural manner. Artificial recharging system can directly recharge 90 % of the water which runs off after the rains,” said Yogesh Sharma, senior hydrologist and nodal officer at state groundwater department.

Officials said a supply of 140 litres per capita per day (lpcd) is sufficient, and in states like Rajasthan more stress should be laid on using water judiciously.

“If Amanishah Nullah is developed as a recharge belt once again, the panchayats in the Jaipur city will witness a change in water level,” said Sharma.

Officials also suggested that water bodies like ‘baoris’ and stepwells should be revived before the monsoon to make the most of rain drop. Currently, stepwells are being used as garbage dumpyards in several areas.

On August 13, 2011 CGWA had declared Sambhar, Sanganer, Govind Gargh, Bassi, Amer, Shahpura were declared notified panchayats after over exploitation of groundwater resources. Earlier, Jhotwara was the only notified panchayat in Jaipur district. In the notified panchayats, boring can be done only after seeking the collector’s permission and that too for drinking purposes only.

Officials also said the authorities have to be strict in monitoring the construction of water harvesting structures. The Jaipur Development Authority (JDA) amended its bylaws in March 2010 and made it mandatory for any housing unit over 300 sq mt to set up a rainwater harvesting structure. The amendment however, failed to have the desired impact.
