Drainage characteristics of a river basin reflect its hydrologic behavior and area useful when quantified in evaluating the hydrologic response of the basin. The Sur river basin is a fifth order basin. The basin shape parameters are not within the standard values given for a good and ideal basin.

Many factors associated with modern society have combined to produce a burgeoning in water demand. This demand can be realized only through efficient management of water sources and supply systems. To achieve sustainable water supply the beneficiary communities should be made to maintain the facilities created in the rural areas.

Urban habitats and high-rise multi-storey developments in urban India indicate new trends in infrastructure planning in water engineering. Along with water for industrial estates, SEZs and commercial centers; planning of water supply, sewerage, roads, urban drainage, and property services now warrants strengthening of urban local bodies and the water utilities. Cost recovery of after services, as a percentage of working expenses, is showing encouraging trend.

In the present study, the potential of a new adsorbent for arsenic removal and nanofiltration membrane for fluoride removal at household level has been studied.

This project is being proposed by the authors for the abatement of pollution of sacred waters of river Shipra, surrounding nearly three fourth of Ujjain the town of Madhya Pradesh, as an integrated approach for fruitful solution for abatement of pollution of the river Shipra.

Development and effective utilization of groundwater resources is essential in arid and semi-arid regions for activities such as water supply and irrigation. The present study aims to analyze, statistically, the groundwater data at the piezometric stations of upper Swarnamukhi basin in the drought prone Rayalseema region of Andhra Pradesh and to develop relationships through multiple linear correlation and regression analysis.

Long-term pumping tests were carried out on Kasai river bed in connection with augmentation of existing water supply of Kharagpur Municipal town in the district of Midnapore (West), West Bengal to cater to the need of growing population as well as industrial units.

Nitrate has become of the key environmental issues because of its implications on human and animal health. Nitrate enters in the human body through the use of ground water for drinking and causes number of health disorders. In Rajasthan, ground waters of Nagaur, Barmer, Bikaner, Churu, Ganganagar, Hanumangarh and Jhunjhunu districts were enriched with high nitrate.

Delhi is an old town, which has gradually grown into a populous city. It is one of the important business centers of India and thickly populated as well. Since the last decade, drinking water problem has created havoc in the city. In this study, we collected 32 drinking water samples through out Delhi. Different parameters were examined using Indian standards to find out their suitability for drinking purposes. During this examination mainly the physico chemical parameters were taken into consideration.

The water quality index (WQI) was calculated for the assessment of ground water quality near to the dye user industry. For the calculation of WQI physicochemical characteristics of groundwater near by dyeing-printing, pulp-paper and tanning industrial areas were studied.
