Introduction

Cities all over the world are experiencing unusual changed flooding conditions with excess and uncertain rains and Indian cities are no exception to this phenomenon. Consequent, one observe warm winters, very hot summer with sustained high temperatures touching and short duration high intensity rainfall resulting in urban flash floods. So that most cities are observing various changes in urban water body (lakes) system with heavy rains, floods, high temperature, water evaporation, humidity… Restoration and Management of Urban Lakes have become major issues in present days. Lake and reservoir management and restoration technologies have evolved for storing fresh water at some extent. They are providing comprehensive coverage of the chemical, physical, and biological processes of eutrophication and its control. The Paris climate summit in December last year has made a decision to “Ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all” as sixth point in its Sustainable Development Goal (SDG). So, we should consider lakes management and restoration as one of the priority factor in these days.

Introduction

Since the dawn of the modern era water & energy resources played pivotal role in changing the path of human development. They are reciprocally and mutually linked. Large quantities of water is needed to produce hydropower and power plant cooling. Interestingly energy is needed for drinking water supplies, waste waters treatment and discharge. Further, depletion of ground water levels escalates the energy demand. Consequent, water – energy nexus has direct bearing on “Climate Change”. Fact is energy consumption in water supply and waste waters treatment accounts for more than 70% of operational costs. Present situation calls for a fresh approach and appropriate methods to tackle the growing challenges in energy concerns in water sector and develop climate resilient systems. This requires the development of a new line of thinking, which integrates the advancement in science and technology, and the knowledge and skills embedded therein.
