Solution: As a resident of Kolkata, West Bengal, our major source of freshwater is the Hooghly River, a branch of the river Ganga. Also, groundwater reserves and harvested rainwater are other sources that we use for obtaining water. The groundwater is accessed through digging wells, tubewells, and borewells. During the months of monsoon, rainwater harvesting is an important activity to add to our water sources.
