Residents of Mandaveli Apartment complex get benefited from the steady rain on Wednesday night

September 19, 2019

Just with a few hours of steady rain on Wednesday night, residents of Murali Anand Apartment in Mandaveli have saved around 7000 litres of water. This has happened after they modified their Rain Water Harvesting (RWH) structure.

Now, besides recharging the groundwater, the residents are also replenishing the 70-year-old well in their premises (shown in picture). A few weeks ago, 12 families at this complex have jointly spent Rs 30000 for this modification.

Earlier, this complex in Raja Street Extension has had two 10 ft deep recharge wells. “But we realized that it was not enough to tap all the water that accumulated during rainfall. So, we connected it to our well,” says N.Ravichandran, a long-time resident and a former Secretary of this Apartment.

In addition, five PVC pipes have been laid to empty the rainwater from their rooftop to the well.

This evening, Uma Krishnan, Secretary of Murali Anand Flat Owners Association was overwhelmed with happiness as in addition to saving a large amount of water, they could also revive the well water which had turned salty.
