Kerala is one of the smallest states in India-covering only 1.3% of the total area of the country. However, it has a total population of over 29 million. The population density, at 747 per sq. km, is much higher than the national average of 267 per sq. km. Geographically, Kerala can be divided into three distinct natural divisions- viz., Sandy Coastal Region ( 75m above MSL). Blessed with an abundance of rainfall of about 3000 mm annually, Kerala has 44 monsoon- fed rivers with a minimum length of 15 kms. However, given the terrain conditions, run-off is also quite high. A study showed that of the total run-off of 77,900Mm3, 70,200 Mm3 is from Kerala catchment areas alone. Thus, it is an irony of sorts that a green, verdant state like Kerala has a lesser than average per capita availability of potable water, even lesser than that of Rajasthan.
Piped water coverage in State, till date, is only 51%, Urban coverage is 77.66%. Most of the families depend on private water sources, which are usually open wells. Most of these wells dry up by early March and remain so till the monsoons, which are in May. Studies show a widespread bacteriological contamination in open wells, borewells and surface sources. Sanitation coverage is only 51.36% in the urban areas and 44% in the rural areas. Only 32% of families below poverty line have Latrines.
Despite the more than adequate investment made by the Govt. on the water and sanitation sector over the years, resultant coverage in both these areas were not in keeping with the investment levels. Some of the major reasons stated were: an unacceptable top down approach to planning, non- involvement of the users, highly inadequate levels of cost recovery, depletion of sources due to overdrawal, frequent breakdowns due to poor operation & maintenance, etc.
