The government of Karnataka which met with a team of Israeli experts is likely to take a call on utilising their services to ensure that water is better conserved.
The spokesman of the Israeli Water Authority Uri Schor informed that with a successful campaign, water can be conserved. If done right then the city can reduce consumption of water by at least 20 percent he also said.
During the meeting with the government officials the team explained that the idea would be to make the individual understand water saving actions. It is very important that an individual understands this especially when the state is facing drought.
Further during the meeting the Karnataka government was also made to understand that in Israel at least 60 per cent of the water is desalinated or recycled. Discussions on improving the quality of water apart from treating lakes in the city was also discussed.
The Karnataka government has been discussing various ways of conserving water and also treating lake water. Issues such as the Bellandur lake which has been frothing has earned the government the wrath of the public. The government is likely to take a call soon on taking the help of foreign agencies in a bid to solve this problem.
