These days’ young and old people are seen carrying plastic container (jerrycans) in the streets of northern and eastern part of Addis Ababa to collect drinking water. Not only residents in Addis Ababa are suffering from acute shortage of water, but also civil servants in some of various state offices are in trouble of getting tap water. The residents of Kechene, Shiromeda, Piassa, AddisuGebeya, SidistKillo and uptoKotebe in the city are often hardest hit by the disruption, and get water supply just once a week and sometimes once in two weeks. Due to imbalance between demand andavailability, management approaches are facing various ethical dilemmas. For aneffective, efficient and sustainable groundwater resources development and management,the planners and decision makers have future challenges to assess the inextricable logicallinkages between water policies and ethical consideration. Groundwater being a hiddenresource is often developed without proper understanding of its occurrence in time and space. Thus groundwater management on scientific lines is the key for sustainability of this vital resource. The issue of groundwater management is multidimensional, related to reliable assessment of available water, its supply and scope for augmentation, distribution, reuse/recycling, its existing depletion, pollution, and its protection from depletion and degradation. And using Independent local management Approach with policy adjustment, different regulatory provisions, demand side measures, and making quality measure and supply management as the framework of groundwater management found in the result section, groundwater can effectively managed.
