DIMAPUR, NOV 22 (DIPR): A training programme on ground water management with special reference to rainwater harvesting and artificial recharge techniques was inaugurated by the Deputy Commissioner, Dimapur, KN Ngullie at the Conference Hall, Directorate of Geology and Mining, Dimapur November 22.

Speaking at the occasion, Ngullie said that water is the most important ingredient for all living beings and the prime objective of the Government is to provide safe-drinking water to all citizens. However, with increase in population the demand for safe drinking water has also increased and the water available on surface is not sufficient to meet all the demands. Therefore, Ngullie  said that the need of the hour is to be equipped  with the right technology to harvest more water for the common people especially through rainwater harvesting.

Ngullie also expressed his gratitude to the scientists, engineers, experts and their associates who formulated new ideas, technology and also for their tireless effort in management studies of water resources. He also called upon the trainees to practice what they have learnt from this programme and to disseminate information to others in their neighbourhood, villages and towns.
