About Water Resource Museum

The Dr. Uppal Water Resource Museum at Punjab Agricultural University in Ludhiana is a wonderful place to learn more about water as a precious resource. It was initially created by Professor Harbans Lal Uppal. He was a renowned scientist and most famous for designing the Bakhra Dam that follows a route covering almost all rivers of Punjab. The idea behind setting up this museum was to spread and popularize the scientific use and management of water. This museum showcases the significance of water in industrialism as well as everyday life. It also showcases the relevance of water as an energy source. Children and elders enjoy taking a tour around the museum as they learn about the different techniques of water resource management. The museum has a three-dimensional model of the interaction of water and land resources. It’s a fascinating physiographic model that reproduces mountain ranges and river systems. At the same time, it also displays manmade factors in the movement of water such as hydraulic, hydro-electric structures, and soil movement. All the models placed at the museum are s made to scale. A bigger model of the natural resources within the state is also kept outside the museum. It gives a glimpse into the geographical landscape of the area.
