In today's world, the use of water is becoming highly used in the field of home, agriculture and trade. Now, even in most rural areas, the water level has started to decrease under the soil even after excessive borewells are installed and in some places many borewells have also been closed.


In such a situation, we have to think about water conservation, that is water conservation, because water is life. Today, due to the use of water in many large factories not only in rural areas but also in urban areas, water scarcity has started.
