At the same time the government has launched ambitious programs such as the ‘Smart City Mission’ and the ‘Make in India’ campaign which need to be reviewed from water and environment lens. Especially in urban areas water resources are under significant pressure due to high water demand and complex consumption patterns within a small but highly-densely populated areas. A local level solution is thus essential for sustainable water management. Practices such as reuse of treated waste water would be of immense significance in achieving water security.
