RAIN WATER HARVESTING INITIATIVE AT OPJU

Aug 26, 2019

OPJU took a step towards water harvesting at campus anddedicatedly constructed four water harvesting pits and a compost pit for mess waste. This initiative was proposed by Dr. P S Bokare Dean (SOE), construction drawing and design prepared by Mr. Vinod Nagpure and executed by Mr. Claude Mathew during 26-31, August 2019.

The collected rain water may be stored, utilized in different ways or directly used for recharge purposes. With depleting ground water 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.
