For more than 10 years a lot of effort has been made from Auroville and friends from all over the world to understand the situation and behavior of water in our area and develop appropriate ways and means to use, reuse, protect, and improve this precious resource. Fundamental steps has been made in our understanding has well as in the way we share this knowledge with the scientific world and the Indian authorities. Still, other mile stones must be laid to address our growing needs for water, from a context where the only resource we use until today, groundwater, is heavily over exploited, depleting and threaten by seawater intrusion and pollution at a regional scale. Considering that water resource management have a strong relationship and interdependency with planning and development issues, it is essential that the various sources potential, limits and possibilities, possible orientations and choices at hand as well as the implications of such choices are clearly understood. Auroville is still in a context where many possibilities are realistically feasible while further development, if not made in relation with our basic needs for water, can impair several of the possibilities and narrow down the choices. The present study proposes to screen the various options we have for today and for tomorrow in term of water resources in order to secure our demand in a sustainable way.
