Abstract

Water scarcity is becoming a chronic phenomenon and is increasingly becoming apparent even in sub-humid areas. Changes in rainfall patterns have been held to be responsible for this water crisis. The factual basis of this popular understanding is examined here with reference to Dewas town which is experiencing a severe water crisis.
