Equitable Distribution Of Drinking Water Supply In Municipal Corporations In Thane District
AbstractDue to higher urbanization, water demand in six Municipal Corporations of Thane district is continuously increasing. The growth of the population, small and large industries, health and educational institutions, commercial units are the responsible factors. The demand of drinking water is continuously increasing but supply is not matching with increasing demand. Municipal Corporations have not made the provision of drinking water to the growing population on 24*7 basis. The alternative policies of rainwater harvesting, reducing leakages and wastage, more provision of funds for water supply projects, revision of tariff structure and private sector participation in distribution of drinking water supply will yield the better results in terms of growing demand of water supply.
