Abstract: Life of every organism present on planet earth is dependent on water, therefore, quantity and quality of water are of utmost significance. Water should not be considered as free but a precious gift of nature. Therefore, it must be used judiciously and prudentially for sustainable future, failing which the situation shall be very formidable. Nature has provided every commodity in abundance but the greedy and negligent tendency of human beings have created an havoc in the case of water. Consumerism, Urbanization and Industrialization along with excessive unproductive use in irrigation have accentuated the situation of .water crisis. Even the elite class people of our country are not only over-exploiting the water resources but are using for recreational purposes. In fact every living organism has right on water. Although, the planet earth has immense quantity of water, i.e. 1,46,00,00,000 Km3 but usable water is very limited (97% in oceans and 2% in ice glaciers). Therefore, we have to conserve every drop of water for our forthcoming generation for their survival. As mostly our dependency is on ground water sources, but unfortunately they are severely depleting owing to over-exploiting. Therefore, it is exigence to make necessary efforts for proper management of ground water sources for present and sustainable future. In the present communication the extent of problem, causative factors and managemental measures will be discussed in detail.
