Advisory on conservation and restoration of water bodies in urban areas

The Ministry of Urban Development (MoUD) has the mandate, inter alia, to conserve/restore urban lakes/water bodies, re-use and re-cycle waste water, etc. These are important factors, some oft forgotten, and have been summed up in the “Advisory on conservation and restoration of water bodies in urban areas” by CPHEEO for the use/guidance of State Governments/ ULBs with the hope that they shall improve it further and apply as per own needs. The initiative gains immense importance in the sense that urban lakes/ water bodies are first victims of urbanization and their conservation /restoration is sign of healthy and sustainable urban development.
