Use of Water Banking Concept in and as Water Conservation

We called WATER as ‘LIFE’. No one can live without water. As everyone knows the recent condition of whole world, ‘WATER SCARCITY’ not only in Maharashtra, not only in India but throughout the world. How to conserve water for recent and future use? There are many ways to conserve the water. This study deals with concept of BANKING of water from the deposing money in bank i.e. banking concept of money. As today we save money in bank for future use or future problem. Similarly, water can also be stored and saved for future draught problem if it occurs, we should be prepared for this condition. The goal of water banking, in general, is to efficiently allocate all available water to achieve an economic growth while achieving an environmental sustainability. In the study implementing this ‘WATER BANKING’ concept to solve the water scarcity problem in Manmad. Water should be store in ample quantity, so it can be used for this year and remaining can be used for next year also. To implement water banking concept, it is neccessory to increase storage capacity of a already constructed dam(Rialway Dam) by removing its silt i.e. ‘DESILTATION OF DAM’ in Manma city. It leads to increase in storage capacity of dam and ground water level etc. Thus, there is a need to explore a new management design approach.
