World Water Day is an international observance day with an aim to inspire people around the world to learn more about water-related issues and take action to make a difference and advocate for the sustainable management of freshwater resources. Demand forfreshwater has been growing day by day.Pressure on water sources has been increasing due to overuse and increasing population and changing lifestyles. As the surface water bodies in most of the urban areas are being polluted and left out as unsafe for human consumption, now pressure on the groundwater has been at an all-time high. Which is resulting in the alarming depletion of the groundwater table. Therefore, the time has come now, that we should all care more about groundwater and think more aboutthe wise use of water and especially groundwater. Therefore, in order to promote awareness of various aspects of water and encourage water conservation and wise use of freshwater sources world water day is being celebrated every year on the 22ndof March.Every year, world water day highlights a specific aspect of freshwater, so this year the theme decided to be “The groundwater: making the invisible visible”
