The UN World Water Development Report 2014 observes that the unsustainable use of water for agriculture is the prime reason for the groundwater level falling in most parts of Gujarat.

“In the state of Gujarat, free groundwater and subsidized electricity to pump it contributed to severe groundwater overdraft, near bankruptcy of the State Electricity Board, and poor power supply to farmers and other rural residents.”

Waterfall helped in rural villages by installing tube wells which supplied 5 villages in the district of Jambusar Gujarat District. The drinking water quality was very poor prior to the installation of the pumps as water was drawn from reservoirs which were contaminated.

Communal Latrine facilities in these villages were also made in order to give privacy and hygiene to the villagers who would not have these facilities in their homes.

Kala School in Palej district, Gujarat was supplied a RO Plant which filters the water drinking usage for primary school children.
