6.         WATER

6.1       The State has normal rainfall pattern of 1200-1400 mm spread across all the regions and possesses a large number of water bodies, reservoir and river basins spread across the State, which is also available for industrial use. It is proposed to carry out a fresh survey to ascertain the actual availability of water.

6.2       Efforts will be made to impress on investors to implement appropriate measures for rational use of this scarce resource and the need for adoption of minimum water consumption technologies and also fixing the percentage of water requirement to be used by recycling of water after use in industries and treatment of waste water.

6.3       Efforts will be made to prepare water supply scheme. Feasibility of desalination plants and supply of recycled and treated waste water to industries will be explored. Govt. will try to implement and facilitate mega water supply schemes for industries at specified locations through IADA/Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) etc.

6.4       Concept of differential water tariff is being introduced :

            (a) Lower tariff for industries minimizing the consumption of industrial water and using less than the norm fixed by any regulatory body / authority / National Standards to the extent possible and also to industries devising means / methods to use flood water for its consumption.

            (b) Higher tariff for industries consuming water more than the specified average norm from national standards or standards fixed by any regulatory body / authority.

            (c) Differential water tariff is also being introduced with respect to the source of allocation (natural river source, govt. owned storages, canals etc) and also whether water is being consumed as raw material.

6.5       Department of Water Resources in consultation with Department of Industries, Department of Energy and other Departments will make periodical review of allocation of water to Industries/Power plants etc and reduce/deallocate/reallocate the water on actual requirement keeping in view the immediate future need.

6.6       (a)   Rain Water Harvesting, Recycling and Re-Use of Waste Water shall remain essential for industries. Department of Water Resource will monitor its compliance outside the command area of IADA for industries other than MSME.

            (b)   In case of MSME outside IADA, self certification with respect to the above by units, shall be allowed.

6.7       Department of Water Resources will issue guidelines in detail regarding use of underground water by the Industries in different areas / zones of the State.

6.8       Storage intervention by industrial units will be encouraged to meet the industrial water demand during non-monsoon period.

6.9       Industrial units will be required to adhere to the discharge norm fixed by Jharkhand State Pollution Control Board (JSPCB).

6.10    Water Policy will be worked out and published by Water Resources Department shortly.
