Chennai: Conflicting in the name of water boundaries and its supply is not the solution to water crises, but taking it up in our hands to conserve water, educate others and fight against water wastage, Dr Rajendra Singh, commonly touted as the Water Man of India. “We have to go back to our traditional means of conserving water, years ago, which were used by people without the knowledge of engineering and construction,” he said. He said that in order to be more efficient at conserving water, the government should take steps to identify all the old water bodies in the state, demarcate them and notify them. “This would help in punishing encroachers on the water bodies,” he said, speaking of the numerous lakes in Tamil Nadu that are not existent today.
