Let me start off with the fact… or rather, a statement issued by the Government of India, Ministry of Water Resources.
Amended Rules of Bangalore Water Supply and Sewerage Board which provide for mandatory provision of rainwater harvesting structures by every owner with area of 2400 sq.ft and above, or every owner who proposes to construct new buildings with site area more than 1200 sq. ft.
The above is as far as Karnataka is concerned.
In simple terms, Rainwater Harvesting is a type of harvest in which the raindrops are collected and stored for future use, rather than allowing it to run off. Rainwater can be collected from rivers or roofs and redirected to a deep pit, aquifer, a reservoir with percolation, or collected from dew or fog with nets or other tools.
In Bangalore, on an average, every acre of land is estimated to get about 3.6 million litres of rain annually. If even a third of this water was recharged, the city’s water and flooding problems would be significantly solved.
