With Nagpur Municipal Corporation (NMC) taking charge of conserving water and getting down to an initiative of rain water harvesting, even local people of the city should start supporting the initiative and be prepared for next summer.
This year the city had a close call with the scarcity of water in many areas. Also, it is seen that the ground water in many areas fall less than the need of people and later on a water tanker is called to meet the ends.
Such cases are observed every year and the numbers are always increasing. A building in an area at least calls a water tanker once a week; each tanker costs more than thousand rupees and provides just 2000 liters for a whole building.
Recently an apartment in Chennai has collected 25,000 litres of water, which is more likely to be collected in an hour. Few installations here, will save much efforts for your future.
What to do for Rain water harvesting?
At present there are more than tens of consultant available on Just Dial in the Nagpur city itself, who can help you install the required materials or guide you on it. This may cost you, but it is for a better good and will be there for at least three continuous seasons.
If not this then, there are few more cheap solutions.
The alternate way:
Connect all of your terrace’s water escape pipes used for dewatering the terrace. Connect all those dewatering pipes to one single large sized pipe which will guide the water to a filtering unit and then to a septic chamber. That’s it you have successfully saved water for yourself and your loved ones.
India already has a list of states that will run out of ground water by 2020 and hence it is important to take sustainable measures from now itself as we have already entered the eleventh hour.
