Abstract: Even Rahim had told us about the importance of the conservation of water, so the common man has been able to understand it’s importance since a very long time. Nowadays the science and the technology have done a great progress but on the other hand we have forgotten the importance of water. Our ancestors had many methods that helped in the conservation of water and ensuring it’s existence. What were the methods innovated by the Indian society regarding the availability of water and also drinking water? What are the methods of water conservation? Society has always kept the sources of drinking water, water for irrigation and water for bathing etc. separately. Other sources for various uses also conserve the water for drinking in the end. for instance ponds, wells, bawris etc. Many places in Bundelkhand are named after the main water conservation sources like ponds, lakes wells etc. Important colonies are also named after such sources for instance Kaalukua, Shukulkua, Lodhikua etc. Many places in Bundelkhand are named after water conservation sources like ponds, lakes, wells etc. colonies in Banda are also named after these sources namely kalukua, lodhikua etc. similarly in Mahoba of Bundelkhand Madan sager & Udalsagar are also named on those sources. 250yrs ago rain water harvesting and its distribution of Panna estate of Bundelkhand has been an exampl for us all. A small city like Panna is self dependent on the basis of drinking water. of ponds had been set up since the time of the rule of Rudrapratap singh in Bundelkhand that are still the backbone of people having there Dharamsagar is one of the 1.5 dozen lakes ,ponds near Panna city .
