Water Management, the Capetonian way. What India can learn from it?

We all heard sometime back that Capetown, the capital of South Africa narrowly escaped the spectre of day zero due to its acute water crisis. Day Zero in environment management terminology implies that Capetown would have been on the verge of its water taps being turned off or the water distributionwould have been rationed to almost 1/3rd of its normal usage, limited to 25 litres per person/ day in line with World Health Organization (WHO) minimum short-term emergency survival recommendations from 81 litres being used regularly by more than 60% population.A step further in this would have been that water would have been distributed through community standpipes to residents.
