Aurangabad Jalstrot Bachav Abhiyan (Aurangabad Water Resources Conservation Mission)


Aurangabad is a historical city of India. It is famous through out the world because of Ajanta, Ellora caves and historical monuments like Bibi-ka-Mkhbra (replica of Taj Mahal), Panchakki-nahar (ancient water carriage system). Aurangabad city was developed by Malik Amber. It was designed nicely by considering the safety and beauty. From safety point of view. a city wall and 52 gates were constructed in the city. For increasing the beauty of city and fulfilling the water requirement Nahar-e- Amberi System ( hydraulic water carriage system) was developed. There are 12 Nahres in Aurangabad and they supply drinkable water to different parts of city. A few Nahar supply water to the lakes of city like Salim Ali Lake, Lotus Lake (Amkhas or town hall lake), Nehru Lake, Himayat Bag lake, Harsool lake. Imagine the beauty of the city due to the lakes. Hence due to these reasons, tourists are attracted towards Aurangabad. But due to the careless development of city, all the historical Nahars (hydraulic ancient water carriage system) are in danger and some of them have now broken. Also various Lakes, Kham river and Sukhna river are in the same critical condition. They are highly polluted. Lake like Kamal Talab (Lotus or town hall ) is totally demolished, In Salim Ali lake, biodiversity is in danger due to discharge of sewerage water in to it. There is a huge deposition of silt in Himyat Bag Lake. All these nahars, lakes and the river needs help, so that they can exist for long time to maintain the Ecology. Hence ECO NEEDS FOUNDATION has come forward to conserve the Aurangabad water resources by launching  Aurangabad Jalstrot Bachav Abhiyan.
