Rain Water Harvesting

F

or us, it’s not just about building tanks, and setting up pumps, but about creating long-term, sustainable change. We build capacity from the ground up and top down, changing entire systems so we won’t have to be around forever – but water services will last for generations to come.

         Water is the source of all life on Earth. And the source of all water is Rain. Instead of diverting or blocking rivers or swallowing up groundwater reserves, we can tap into the potential of harvesting the rain itself. Rainwater harvesting (RWH) is a simple method by which rainfall is collected for future usage. The collected rainwater may be stored, utilised in different ways or directly used for recharge purposes. With diminishing groundwater levels and fluctuating climate conditions, RWH can go a long way to help mitigate these effects.

Capturing the rainwater can help recharge local aquifers, reduce urban flooding and most importantly ensure water availability in water-scarce zones. This water conservation method can be easily practiced in individual homes, apartments, parks, offices and temples too.

         We at Pagdand are promoting RWH to all the citizens of Vadodara as a viable technological solution to combat water crisis. Pagdand helps install RWH systems across the city. We set up the entire mechanism from start to finish in accordance to the considerations of the site and the suggestions of our water expert.
