Aurangabad is a historical city formerly named as a ‘KHADAKI’ developed on the banks of KHAM River by Adilshah’s Prime Minister Malik Amber. To fulfill the water requirement of the city ,Malik Amber utilized the valley of Kham river along with he had constructed NAHAR-E-Ambari ( Hydraulic water carriage system) Also, for the protection of city from floods due to Kham river and from enemies he and Moghul emporers had constructed city wall along with 52 gates around city. It reflects city designed for considering safety and fulfilling water requirement for its development. 

Malik amber has utilized each and every natural resource for water management. Day by day population has goes on increasing and city has expanded from its original position. Also the water resources utilized by the Malik Amber for development of old city, were not being utilized by new authority(AMC).To fulfill the domestic and industrial water demand of city water is carried from Jayakwadi Dam which is constructed across the Godavari river at Paithan. But, still population of city and demand for water are increasing hand in hand . For considering future and present water demand ,city have again rethink on the historical water resources that was created and utilized by Malik Amber.
