Rainwater Harvesting

Hani Hani koodidare Halla...

Little drops of water make up a mighty ocean...

I want to create awareness on Rainwater Harvesting (RWH). I am inspired by the utility of rainwater harvesting and its benefits. It is something each one of us can do at home and save water.

Each drop of water saved is each drop earned...

I believe that Rainwater Harvesting is the best and easily implemented grassroot level effort for sustainable water resources in India and the world. It is very pertinent to growing cities like Bangalore which face acute shortage of water.

Bangalore, save your water today!

(Rain brings joy, saving it brings prosperity)

I will update this page as and when I gather more on water harvesting.

For a start, visit http://www.rainwaterharvesting.org

The BWSSB (Bangalore Water Supply and Sewerage Board) and KSCST (Karnataka State Council for Science and Technology) have started a joint program to promote RWH in Bangalore and Karnataka. They organize workshops, train people, and also provide support to design RWH systems for large buildings. I attended one of their workshops on RWH. It was informative and showed the practical use of RWH. For, more details, visit http://www.kscst.iisc.ernet.in/rwh.html
