ABSTRACT

This paper reveals about the significance of water in rural areas. Of the many essential elements for the existence of human beings and animals and universally known as air, water, food, shelter etc., the importance of water is rated as the highest. It is the Nature’s free gift to human race. The importance of water in human life is so much that the development of every city of the world has practically taken place near some source of water supply. Safe drinking water supply and basic sanitation are vital human needs for health and efficiency. All the ill health, diseases and deaths in developing nations including India are attributed to the lack of these essentials. According to W.H.O. about 30000 people die everyday in the world due to unsafe water consumption and insufficient sanitation. Water is essential to sustain life and a satisfactory supply must be made available to consumers. Every effort should be made to achieve drinking water quality as high as practicable. Protection of water supplies from contamination is the first line of defence.
