Résumé
Agriculture is no doubt the primary user of water. Although water requirements in all the sectors - agriculture, domestic, industary, etc. are going to increase, but their proportionate share in each of the subsector is going to change drastically in india and water conservation in all its uses is thus the real focus of the study. Water plays a vital role in the economy, through its use in agriculture and industry, as well as supplying energy through hydropower. A third of the world’s harvested crops are produced by irrigated agriculture. Much of the natural environment, from coastal ecosystems to wetlands, depands on water. Degrading the quality or supply of that water can have disastrous effect on the environment and on biodiversity. Water resources planning is a scientific tool aimed not only at optimal utilization and management but also to make developmentalists aware of environmental and social equity considerations as well as to make the environmentalists aware of economic development considerations. Water is considered to be a renewable natural resources since it is continually being renewed through nature’s hydrological cycle. Also it may be regrarded as a unique resource, as the total amount of water available on the ’Global basis’ remains constant. It does not imply that ’local’ or regional sources of water can neither be exhausted by ’irrational use’ nor rendered unusable due to large scale contamination. More and more water is being used for different purpose which tend to deteriorate the quality of water receiving bodies and simultaneously there is an increasing demand for ’good quality’ water.
