Increasing water-use efficiency key to rejuvenation of rivers: Water Resources Ministry

New Delhi, June 28 (UNI) Increasing water-use efficiency and banning over-extraction of water are important for rejuvenation of rivers like Ganga or Yamuna, along with setting up sewage and industrial effluents' treatment plants, a top Union Water Resources Ministry official said here on Thursday.
Inaugurating an ASSOCHAM National Conference on Water Management, Secretary of Union Ministry of Water Resources, River Development and Ganga Rejuvenation UP Singh said, ''Increasing water-use efficiency would not only make more water available to us, but also contribute in large way in rejuvenating our rivers''.
Mr Singh impressed upon the need to promote small surface storage and emphasise more on groundwater storage as constructing bigger dams like Bhakra-Nangal had become a difficult task, owing to issues related to resettlement and rehabilitation (R&R), land acquisition, wildlife clearance, forest, biodiversity conservation and others.
