The water resources in Arunachal Pradesh are in abundance, many rivers coming from china which is located in the upstream, are flowing in the state. The land of rising sun situated in the eastern Himalayan region now days faces severe damages of their water resources due to many reasons. This study is about the various factors which are responsible for the impact of the water resources in the state. The study shows us that, the construction of huge dams by china on the upstream is majorly a factor and is responsible for deplenishen the quality of water in the rivers like Siang. The study also tells us that the long term effects of the construction of dams or diverting the river is very hazardous as the rivers not only dried, but ecological, and geographical problems like Glaciers present in the state are affected by this and land which is very rich in water resources on both ground water and surface water will deplete. The research paper shows the various water resources of the state and its present status, the paper also tries to evaluate the impact of the water bodies on the State and its stake holders.
