This is India's first and most comprehensive survey presented in an attractive 2-volume set on the state of its water and its management. It is the 7th Report in our highly popular SOE Series. It would be of immense value to professionals and decision makers in the Central and State Governments besides academicians, researchers, NGOs and all major Libraries. In these two volumes you will get to know the water-waste profiles of 71 Indian cities. Within their pages lie the model for a sustainable and affordable growth. Volume 1 dwells on how urban India is soaking up water, polluting rivers and drowning in its own waste.
