Hydrology in Auroville

Toby a hydrologist and Aurovilian speaks about the state of water management in and around the bio-region of Auroville. His presentation includes a warning about Auroville’s potential future of overtaxed aquifers, poorly constructed failing infrastructure, and lowering water tables. Toby also speaks about solutions such as making community water use public information to encourage conservation, investing in alternative water infrastructure including rainwater catchment and desalination plants, and implementing a water distribution system where people would pay the real cost of clean water now to raise the necessary funds to maintain Auroville’s water autonomy in the future.
