Water conservation Initiatives of HMWSSB

The Ground water levels of Hyderabad city are fast depleting and might become water stress city by 2020, as per the Niti Ayog report of Govt. of India in year 2018. Much prior to the Niti Ayog report, sensing the gravity of the ground water position, HMWSSB has initiated various awareness programmes on the importance of water conservation since the year 2016, viz. 100 days action plan, Jalabhagyam, Jalam-Jeevam and now WaLCalliance.

  • 3. In 2018, Jalam-Jeevam another series of consumer awareness programmes are designed before monsoon to promote construction of RWH structures, Non-Govt. Organizations are roped in to reach out to public and to encourage RWH.
