Abstract : Water is a natural resource for sustaining life and environment. Effective and sustainable management of water resources is vital for ensuring sustainable development. In the transboundary basin of Punjab, management of water has not been considered as an integral part of water. People think that abundant resource doesn’t need to be managed. The source of water is from the ground. The ground water level may not be stable because of seasonal changes and due to over usage of ground water for production purposes in factories. Even though the ground water is available, due to inefficient and unregulated distribution system, it is not distributed properly to the houses causing water shortage. Especially, the crisis of water in village during morning chores is the live example of such situations. Lack of sanitation services makes the surroundings polluted and unhealthy place to live. Village people lack awareness about conservation of water. Certain measures should be taken to implement the water conservation methods. Water management is too fundamental, unsustainable if it cannot be upheld or defended. It needs the combined initiative and action of all, which makes sense about the socio-economic development. The proposed paper describes about the present water scenario, drinking water scenario, water management and challenges faced by people.
