Resurrect Jamwai Ramgarh Dam in Jaipur
0 have signed. Let’s get to 500!
The Project is to create awareness and get 1 lakh signatures to revive Ramgarh lake, Jaipur which is dry at the moment.
In the year 1982, Asian games water sports were held here. In 1985, 72 million liters of water was provided by the dam to Jaipur on a daily basis.
Despite Rajasthan High Courts directive, no suitable action has been taken to revive the Dam.
A Predictable Future about the Water supply of Jaipur.
Jaipur annual growth rate is 5.3 % its population is expected to increase from 3.1 million in 2011 26.5 million by 2025. As the demand for water increases in the city by the day, the Public Health and Engineering department (PHED) data Bisalpur dam can supply water to Jaipur and nearby areas till October 2018 if the rainfall is not enough.
The Master Development Plan 2025 by JDA relies on water supply from the Bisalpur dam for Jaipur. For the new satellite towns around the city the draft plan says the groundwater resources would take care of the needs. At the same time, the draft plan acknowledges that the groundwater in these areas too is depleting and its quality is also deteriorating.
Jaipur is currently withdrawing water at 200 percentages of the annual groundwater recharge rate and in some areas of Jaipur district the groundwater table has depleted by over 25 m since 2001.
So I would like to leave you with a question, where are the Jaipur’s residents going to get the water in Future. With the population increasing and the groundwater depleting at a fast rate, Will the Bisalpur Dam be able to sustain us?
Where will Jaipur’s, our children’s water supply come from, or will Jaipur run into zero water day like Cape Town???
