Rain water harvesting to solve Lucknow's water woes
By A Business Correspondent
With ground water resources fast depleting the Uttar Pradesh Jal Nigam is opting for rain water harvesting to solve Lucknow's perennial water problem. The situation has been further aggravated by the receding water levels of river Gomati.
The Jal Nigam plans to collect rain water from every rooftop and utilise it to recharge the ground water. Through a sustained and comprehensive effort 20 million cubic metres of rain water can be collected for recharging ground water resources.
The Jal Nigam has successfully installed a rain harvesting plant in its own residential colony. The plant has a catchment area of about 600 sq. mt and is expected to recharge 460 cubic metres of water per annum.
