Potable water is becoming scarcer; often making it more energy intensive to procure. More energy is required to pump water to greater distances and from deeper depth in the ground. This alarming situation and ever increasing population has cautioned everybody to conserve the available water resources and adapt oneself to optimum use of available water. The water supply, being an essential commodity, has to be looked upon from demand side as well as supply side1,2. The urban local bodies, which are from the supply side, will have to play vital role in managing this often-scarce resource. As global urbanization continues, they have the complex task of cost effectively providing water to keep cities functioning further in the process of improving overall water system efficiency, energy & water consumption have to be viewed as linked inputs rather than viewing them as separate and unrelated. On the other hand, the demand side which consists of consumers has to be made aware of the present situation of the available water resources, necessary habitual changes required to be made by adopting various means of water conservation, optimal use of available water, re-used and recirculation of waste water for some activities3,4,5 .
