Companies in India are contending with a growing resource crisis: water shortage. With 54% of the country’s total area facing high to extremely high water stress, India is positioned to become one of the most water-stressed countries in the world. But companies, government agencies, and other water users have a new tool poised to make a meaningful difference, the India Water Tool 2.0 (IWT 2.0). The web platform incorporates a series of interactive maps including groundwater level, rainfall, surface water availability, projected water stress, and water quality. Users can upload or enter GPS-based locations and receive custom reports featuring charts and graphs quantifying water-risk metrics. The tool allows companies to answer questions including: How many of my sites are in high stress regions? How many of my sites are in over-exploited or critical areas? What is the net groundwater availability and projected demand for groundwater for my sites? Are any sites in areas where the concentration of pollutants are above permissible limits?
