Harvest rain water and reap the gains

Vishwas News

Hyderabad, Feb 10:It is not just for a good cause. It is also to make sure that no wars break out over water in the future. The Telangana government's initiative to conserve water and improve the groundwater levels in the State, with particular focus on urban areas like Hyderabad, by going all out on a massive rainwater harvesting campaign, has more than one aim. Recharging groundwater, increasing groundwater levels, rejuvenation of dried wells, improvement in the yield of wells, improvement in quality of groundwater, prevent inundation of roads and flood hazards, save future generations from water scarcity, reduce power consumption, all this through eco-friendly means is the initiative in short.
"Collection of rooftop water in a sump and recharge pit facilitates direct use of rainwater apart from recharge to groundwater. This helps in reducing water bills and cutting down on huge investments on purchase of water through tankers in areas with water shortage," explains an official of the Hyderabad Metropolitan Water Supply and Sewerage Board (HMWSSB). As part of the initiative, HMWSSB has called for applications from interested Residents Welfare Associations for conducting awareness programmes in colonies for technical guidance to construct rainwater harvesting / conservation structures themselves on their own premises.
