Dr. Tara Kulkarni focused her research on the city of Pune, India and its water resources. Pune is the second largest city in Maharashtra; a highly urbanized state characterized by expanding cities that house approximately 42.5% of its population (approximately 2.5 million in 2001 and projected to be 5.7 million by 2027). The city currently supplies over 650 million liters of water per day to its residents through a 2000 km long pipeline. On the treatment side, approximately 68% of the city’s sewage of over 300 million liters daily is treated by five sewage treatment plants. As development expands and imposes additional burdens on the already strained water resources, efforts made by the Pune Municipal Corporation as well as private builders and developers were researched, focusing on green storm water infrastructure, water conservation, treatment, and water harvesting practices. The case study will be documented in an upcoming book on water resources planning exemplifying ongoing efforts in the Asian subcontinent, as the prospect of water insecurity looms large.
