Revival of Mansagar Lake, Jaipur: A Case study

The aesthetic importance of water bodies be it natural or man-made, is well established. Their significance in urban landscape is even more since water bodies like lakes, reservoirs, ponds act as sponge in the event of heavy rainfall spells, recharge aquifers or augment raw water availability at the time of water scarcity. Apart from these evident benefits, water bodies also play a role in maintaining the micro-climate at comfortable levels in their vicinity. In the times when climate is changing and urbanization is happening at an unprecedented pace, the value of an urban water body and its maintenance at healthy levels, becomes extremely important.
