Abstract: Water is an essential commodity for survival and development. But the ever-increasing human population, technological modernization, changing life patterns and erratic monsoons are likely to lead to water crisis in this millennium. In the study, indigenous water conservation systems of Himachal Pradesh have been studied. The villagers had developed different indigenous techniques/structures in such a way so that the groundwater as well as the rainwater could be utilized properly.Various water conservation systems found in the state, baudi, nawn, chhrudu, khatri, khad, nala, etc. have been described.
