Storm water harvesting & Defunct Bore well Recharge

Section: Rainwater Harvesting pages are not under access control

Storm water runoff occurs when precipitation from rain flows over the land surface. Storm water drains are being implemented in all the urban areas and they can be used for ground water recharge. The storm water harvesting includes:

  • Rain water collection through storm water drain
  • Recharge well and Recharge shaft
  • Creation of storm water storage ponds in the flow accumulation points.
  • A special drive will be focused for recharging the defunct bore wells that are spread over in the Urban Local Bodies by diverting the roof and storm water on roadsides.

In cities/towns storm water harvesting shall be achieved by,

  • Rainwater collection through storm water
  • Creation of storm water storage ponds in the flow accumulation points

Special emphasis will be given for recharging the defunct bore wells that are spread over in the ULBs by diverting the surface runoff/storm water flow. This will improve the deeper aquifer to make the drinking water sources sustainable, especially in hard rock area where subsurface is heterogeneous, devoid of potential fractures in shallow and medium depth and surface recharge system techniques is not suitable.
