Recharging our water aquifers is one way to help contend with our impending water crisis. Back in 2016, the Punjab government began a four-year project for recharging aquifers as part of its groundwater management and to develop the economical and sustainable technology for aquifer recharging. This project was meant to be implemented by the irrigation department. One wonders what the results of this project have been, and whether there are plans to learn from and to replicate this initiative.
