Country Overview

1.1.1.WATER RESOURCES India has an annual average precipitation of 1,170mm and about 80 per cent of the total area of the country experiences annual rainfall of 750mm or more. Due to the large spatial and temporal variability in the rainfall, water resources distribution in the country is highly varied in space and time. The two main sources of water in India are rainfall and the snowmelt of glaciers in the Himalayas. Although snow and glaciers are poor producers of freshwater, they are good distributors as they yield at the time of need, in the hot season. Indeed, about 80 per cent of the flow of rivers in India occurs during the four to five months of the southwest monsoon season. Several important river systems originate in upstream countries and then flow to other countries: the Indus River originates in China and flows to Pakistan; the Ganges-Brahmaputra river system originates partly in China, Nepal and Bhutan, and flows to Bangladesh; some minor rivers drain into Myanmar and Bangladesh. However, there are no official records available regarding the quantum of annual flows into the country or out of the country. The rivers of India can be classified into the following four groups: -The Himalayan rivers (Ganges, Brahmaputra, Indus) are formed by melting snow and glaciers as well as rainfall and therefore have a continuous flow throughout the year. As these regions receive very heavy rainfall during the monsoon period, the rivers swell and cause frequent floods. -The rivers of the Deccan plateau (with larger rivers such as the Mahanadi, Godavari, Krishna, Pennar and Cauvery draining into the bay of Bengal in the east, and the Narmadi and Tapi draining into the Arabian sea in the west), making up most of the southern-central part of the country, are rain-fed and fluctuate in volume, many of them being non-perennial. -The coastal rivers, especially on the west coast south of the Tapi, are short in length with limited catchment areas, most of them being non-perennial. -The rivers of the inland drainage basin in western Rajasthan in the northwestern part of the country towards the border with Pakistan are ephemeral, drain towards the salt lakes such as the Sambhar, or are lost in the sands. For planning purposes, the country is divided into 20 river units, 14 of which are major river basins, while the remaining 99 river basins have been grouped into 6 river units. The spatial imbalance of distribution of water resources can be appreciated by the fact that the Ganges-BrahmaputraMeghna basin covering 34 per cent of the country’s area contributes about 62 per cent of the water resources. The west-flowing rivers towards the Indus covering 10 per cent of the area contribute 4 per cent of the water resources. The remaining 56 per cent of the area contributes 34 per cent to the runoff. The water resources potential of the country is assessed as the natural runoff of the rivers and is estimated at 1,869.35km3, of which only 1,122km3 are considered as utilizable or exploitable in view of the constraints of topography, uneven distribution of the resource over space and time, the geological factors and the contemporary technological knowledge. These 1,122km3 comprise 690km3 from surface water and 432km3 from groundwater. The internal renewable water resources (IRWR) have been estimated at 1,238.13km3/year by deducting the inflow from neighbouring countries (210.2km3/year from Nepal, 347.02km3/year from China and 74km3/year from Bhutan) from the total estimated flow of 1,869.35km3/year. The overlap between surface water and groundwater is assumed to be 90 per cent. Under the Indus Water Treaty (1960) between India and Pakistan, all the waters of the eastern tributaries of the Indus River originating in India, i.e. the Sutlej, Beas and Ravi rivers taken together, shall be available for the unrestricted use of India. All the waters, while flowing in Pakistan, of any tributary which in its natural course joins the main Sutlej or the main Ravi after these rivers have crossed into Pakistan shall be available for the unrestricted use of Pakistan. This flow reserved by treaty is estimated at 11.1km3/year, which gives a total of 1,858.25km3/year (=1,869.35 – 11.1) total actual renewable water resources. An important part of the surface water resources leaves the country before it reaches the sea: 20km3/year to Myanmar, 181.37km3/year to Pakistan and 1,105.6km3/year to Bangladesh, of which 598.9km3 flows through the Brahmaputra, 343.93km3 through the Ganges and 162.77km3 through the northeastern rivers. In 2004, wastewater production was estimated at 10.585km3 and treated wastewater was about 2.555km3. No reliable statistics are available on the number of desalination plants, their capacities, technologies adopted and status in India. However, estimates indicate that there are more than 1,000 membrane-based desalination plants of various capacities ranging from 20m3/day to 10,000m3/day. There are a few thermal-based desalination plants also. In 1996, some 550,000m3 of seawater were desalinated in the Lakshadweep Islands, mainly through electro dialysis and Reverse Osmosis (RO). Solar stills are also installed on the peninsula, as in Gujarat in the northwest. A 6,300m3/day desalination plant is being set up at Kalpakkam, Chennai with a capacity of 4,500m3 from the Multi Stage Flash (MSF) method, using low pressure steam from Madras Atomic Power Station, and 1,800 m3/day from RO. While the plant with the RO method is under operation, the MSF-based plant is expected to be commissioned soon. There are as many as 4,526 large dams and a large number of smaller dams and diversion structures in India. The total water storage capacity constructed up to 2002 was 212.78km3. Another 76.26km3 are estimated to be possible through dams under construction and 107.54km3 Country Overview - India through dams under consideration. Seven dams have a reservoir capacity exceeding 8km3. They are the Nagarjuna Sagar dam on the Krishna River (11.56km3), the Rihand dam on the Rihand River (10.6km3), the Bhakra dam on the Sutlej River (9.62km3), the Srisailam dam on the Krishna River (8.72km3), the Hirakud dam on the Mahanadi River (8.1km3), the Pong (Beas) dam on the Beas River (8.57km3) and the Ukai dam on the Tapti River (8.5km3). India controls the flow of the Ganges River through a dam completed in 1974 at Farraka, 18km from the border with Bangladesh. The Farakka Barrage is a diversion structure of small height not classified as a large dam. India is endowed with rich hydropower potential, ranking fifth in the world. The gross hydropower potential was estimated at 148,700MW as installed capacity, or 84,000MW at 60 per cent power load factor. The Brahamaputra, Ganges and Indus basins contribute about 80 per cent of it. In addition to this, small, mini and micro hydropower schemes (with capacity less than 3MW) have been assessed to have almost 6,782MW of installed capacity. 1.1.2.WATER USE It is estimated that in 2010 total water withdrawal was 761km3 of which 91 per cent, or 688km3, was for irrigation purposes. About 56km3 were for municipal use and 17km3 for industrial purposes. In 2010, primary surface water withdrawal accounted for 396km3, primary groundwater withdrawal accounted for 251km3, and reused agricultural drainage water accounted for 113km3. In 1996, some 550,000m3 of seawater were desalinated. In 1990, the total water withdrawal was estimated at 500km3, of which 92 per cent was for irrigation purposes. The primary surface water withdrawal was 362km3, while the amount coming from primary groundwater was estimated at 190km3.

1.2.WATER QUALITY, ECOSYSTEMS AND HUMAN HEALTH Major environmental problems are deforestation; soil erosion; overgrazing; desertification; air pollution from industrial effluents and vehicle emissions; water pollution from raw sewage and runoff of agricultural pesticides; tap water is not potable throughout the country; and the huge and growing population is overstraining natural resources. Water quality is a major issue in India. Although in their upper reaches most rivers are of good quality, the importance of water use for cities, agriculture and industries, and the lack of wastewater treatment plants in the middle and lower reaches of most rivers, cause a major degradation of surface water quality. Groundwater is also affected by municipal, industrial and agricultural pollutants. The overexploitation of groundwater can also lead to seawater intrusion. For example, there is an inland advance of the saline-freshwater interface in the Chingelput district of Tamil Nadu, where a well field along the Korttalaiyar River supplies water to the city of Madras. In 1992, the Central Pollution Control Board completed water quality studies in all major river basins. The pollution control action plan of the Ganges River basin was formulated in 1984 and has been enforced by the Ganges Project Directorate, under the Central Ganges Authority, to oversee pollution control and the consequent cleaning of the Ganges River. The water quality in the middle stretch of the Ganges River, which had deteriorated to class C and D (the worst class is E, the best A), was restored to class B in 1990 after the implementation of the action plan. Similar programmes for other rivers have been developed as well as a national river action plan to clean the heavily polluted stretches of the major rivers of the country. According to the National Commission on Floods, the area subject to flooding is estimated at about 400,000km2 (about 12 per cent of the area of the country). About 80 per cent of this area, or 320,000km2, could be provided with reasonable protection. Bihar is the worst flood-hit state. Hardly a year passes without severe flood damage. With the onset of the monsoon, rivers come down from the Himalayan hills in Nepal with enormous force, leading to rivers like the Ghagra, Kamla, Kosi, Bagmati, Gandak, Ganges, Falgu, Karmnasa and Mahanadi rising above the danger level. This results in severe floods in north Bihar. The Kosi River, popularly known as “the sorrow of Bihar”, has not yet matured enough to settle on a course, and has changed its course 15-16 times, the last time being as recent as August 2008. About 2.8 million people were said to have been marooned by these floods in Bihar. The total area subject to waterlogging was estimated at 85,000km2 in 1985, including both rain-fed and irrigated areas. This is thought to be a substantial underestimate as precise data are lacking. It is estimated that about 24 per cent of irrigated command areas of major and medium irrigation projects is subject to waterlogging. Measures to counter waterlogging and salinity are being taken by constructing field channels and drains, and by encouraging the combined use of surface water and groundwater. Furthermore, it is estimated that out of the total irrigated area about 33,000km2 are affected by salinity. Water-borne diseases have continued increasing over the years in spite of government efforts to combat them. States such as Punjab, Haryana, Andhra Pradesh and Uttar Pradesh are endemic for malaria on account of the high water table, waterlogging and seepage in the canal catchment area. There are also numerous cases of filariasis. In 1998 the population affected by water-related diseases was 44 million people. Climate change may alter the distribution and quality of India’s water resources. Some of the impacts include more intense rains, changed spatial and temporal distribution of rainfall, higher runoff generation, low groundwater recharge, melting of glaciers, changes in evaporative demands and water use patterns in agricultural, domestic and industrial sectors, etc. These impacts have serious influences on agricultural production and food security, ecology, biodiversity, river flows, floods, droughts, water security, human and animal health, and sea levels.
