According to the Dynamic Groundwater Resources of Telangana State -2020 report released by the state government on Tuesday, Hyderabad may be staring at a water crisis in the future as groundwater levels are 'critical'. Interestingly, Hyderabad is the only district with 'critical' among the districts of Telangana. The high population density and rapid commercialization are the reasons for groundwater exploitation.


Meanwhile, Rangareddy, Jangaoun, Rajanna Sircilla have been categorized as semi-critical. The report is arrived after analyzing 584 mandals across all the districts. Groundwater levels in 25 mandals have been over-exploited as compared to 70 in the previous assessment. The report claims that the groundwater exploitation has come down due to the Kaleshwaram Lift Irrigation Scheme and the Mission Kakatiya program.


"Due to the groundwater level management programs of the Government, the water table increased by more than four meters in the last six years yielded approximately 400 tmc of additional groundwater recharge. About 93 percent of villages and 70 percent of watersheds in the state come under the safe category," the report suggests.
