India being the monsoonal country, the rain falls only for 3 to 4 months in a year with high intensity, which results more runoff and soil erosion. Rapid expansion of ground water use in India in the last three decades has resulted in a steep decline in the ground water table in vast areas of the country. The rain fall is abundant in the world and also in India. But it is not evenly distributed in all places. India is well endowed nations in the world in terms of average annual rainfall. The efforts are being taken by the NGOs and other organizations from the micro level. The municipal offices, town planners of the urban sectors are changing their outlook positively towards meeting water scarcity of the future generations. Water is our most precious natural resource, which is very much appreciated. Water is becoming a scarce commodity and it is considered as a liquid gold. The demand of water is also increasing day by day not only for Agriculture, but also for house hold and Industrial purposes. It is very essential to harvest rainwater during rainy season. We are now increasingly becoming aware of the importance of water to our survival and its limited supply. The use of every communication channel is needed to identify the effect of climate change on the function of water points.
