Water Bodies Restoration
Due to the ever-increasing population, increase in construction activities and demand for residential purposes & development activities, water conservation becomes a prime concern to the entire world (Think about SouthAfrica Capetown 2018 Water Crisis). Now the land of natural drainage channels are in danger because it does not owned by any particular village or city or person. Unauthorised use of land in natural drainage channels like rivers, their tributaries, etc., village ponds and small rivers are causing obstruction in the normal natural flow of water in them. Global freshwater resources are threatened by rising demands from many quarters. Growing populations need even more water for drinking, hygiene, sanitation, food production, and industry. Climate change, meanwhile is excepted to contribute to droughts. Unless every individual in the world take a step it becomes difficult to survive in near future.
The following measures were taken by our Dr. Abdul Kalam Trust Volunteers to protect natural water channels like Lake, Pond, Etc., from unauthorized occupation and ensure normal natural flow in them and also protection of village Pond and artificial water reservoirs in Tamil Nadu and Puducherry.
