Abstract

Water crisis has become a part of our life. This is not altogether due to shortage of rainfall, but also due to increasing population, growing industrialization, expanding urbanization, agriculture activities etc., demand more and more water. Coping up with these developments requires various tactics to overcome the water shortage and satisfy the need of all. Water pollution is a serious problem in all over the world and particularly more in India as almost 70% of its surface water resources, and groundwater reserves are contaminated by biological, toxic, organic, and inorganic pollutants. The main activity in this direction is to decrease the pollution level of discharged effluents and treatment of contaminated water to acceptable quality. Nanotechnology is quickly developing in various fields.
