Finally, all water bodies were to be renovated under various schemes of the government and made fit to conserve water.
Satellite imageries also reveal that the seasonal water bodies are either utilized for agriculture or they are weed-infested after monsoon.
The perennial water bodies are maximum in Madhubani (902), followed by East Champaran (267) and Darbhanga (250).
Under the water bodies' conservation project, which is part of the disaster risk reduction road map (2015-30) of the state government, the department was first supposed to identify all community water bodies in the state and then remove encroachments, if any.
