Telengana’s district collector raises the water table by six meters in three years!

Sending climate love to IAS office Devarakonda Krishna Bhaskar for implementing effective water management measures which have now been added to textbooks in school. In a country like India, water shortage has been a regular issue. And various parts of Telangana perennially come under drought or semi-drought prone areas. It is in this state that IAS officer Devarakonda Krishna Bhaskar implemented multiple water management measures and ultimately raised the water table in the region by six meters in just three years.
Every drop counts. We can't afford to lose this precious resource.
Every drop counts. We can't afford to lose this precious resource.

Overexploitation, rain-water shortage and contamination were the major reasons behind groundwater shortage in Telangana, a Southern state in India, for the last few years. Not only was this causing hindrance to industries and agriculture, people were also facing a lot of difficulties getting basic drinking water. When Bhaskar was designated here three years ago, he took it on himself to find a solution to this seemingly unending problem. He implemented various measures like desilting water bodies, land acquisition of reservoirs, increasing capacity for water shortage, upgrading tanks so they had piped water systems, and more. For three years he worked non-stop, ensuring the region went on a massive drive to collect rain water and conserve water on a large scale. And now we can see the results. More power to people like him who work selflessly for the greater good. We really can't have enough of them. Learn more about IAS D Krishna Bhaskar and his measures for water conservation:
