      Leading to the conclusion from my point of view expresses earlier in the post (Deep bore well design and Rainwater Harvesting) and subsequent solutions that I offered as an alternative to deep borewell technology (Rain Water Harvesting- Deep Borewell Design and Its Alternative), I would like to share my idea further to carry out the same in any city or a highway. While adopting these concept we can be assured of the following: 1. Been Implementable without any additional money / budget for groundwater recharge / rainwater harvesting.

  • Rain Water Harvesting- Deep Borewell Design and Its Alternative !!!

    17-08-2017

    Continuing from the last week post (Deep bore well design and Rainwater Harvesting) which discussed why Deep Bore-well Design (DBD) may not be the right choice, this week we would discuss how Rain Water Harvesting (RWH) be uncomplicated without been easy to maintain as well. The very first flaw that this design has is that it tends to concentrate the entire rainfall over a concentrated area. So the moment concentrate rains, you are also concentrating the pollution, the acids washed by rains, the silt accumulated and so on.

  • On the Verge of a Water Crisis

    25-04-2017

      Although there is abundant supply of water, the ground reality remains that we are on the verge of a great water crisis. We have depleted natural fresh water sources such as ground water with excess use and misuse. Despite more than 70% of Earth’s surface being covered by water, majority of this is in the oceans. This salty ocean water is not fit for consumption. Humans have moved towards urban areas and encouraged practices like deforestation, swamp reclamation and industrial growth at the expense of natural green cover. This has led to a drastic decrease in the amount of rainfall received in many parts
