RAINWATER HARVESTING SYSTEM
Rooftop water from the buildings is discharged into storm
water drains, and
then it flows along with surface runoff.
This water is collected in a collection chamber of size 0.45
m x 0.45 m x 0.5
m which is covered with a perforated slab and placed a low
lying area so that
water can flow into the collection chamber naturally. Rainwater
chamber will be diverted to a recharge well measuring 1 m
x 1 m x 2 m. This
recharge well is provided with a 10 m deep recharge bore of
diameter. The recharge well is also provided with layers of
coarse sand to ensure proper filtration of storm water used
Implementation of this project was completed in January 2004,
water level as in January 2005 was around 7.3 m below ground
Cost of the rainwater harvesting system:
Rs 1.74 lakh.
