Rainwater Harvesting

rainwater-harvesting-01

95% of the rainwater is lost through run-off into the sea. With hardly 5% of the available rainwater being put to use, the huge wastage of this precious resource is alarming.

Our negligence in making effective use of rainwater has led to the declining level of ground water. Moreover, with unpredictable monsoons, lot of villages face water scarcity through the year which makes it difficult to sustain even normal life

*2.2 billion people globally do not have access to safe water at home

Project "Nayi Ummeed"

PROJECT Nayi Ummeed’, an initiative by Bisleri International Pvt. Ltd., focuses to conserve rainwater by building and restoring Check Dams. Check Dams help store the surface water for use both during and after the monsoon. It also helps in recharging the groundwater in the area.

Bisleri undertook the first Check Dam project in 2001 at Village Bara in Kutch, Gujarat. Since then, 131 Check Dams have been built or restored across Gujarat and Western & Central parts of Maharashtra. These Check Dams have helped harvest 16.5 billion litres of water covering more than 124 villages and benefiting around 10,000 families. A total of 6,500 acres of land has been irrigated turning all the barren lands into fertile farms. As a result, per farmer’s average annual income in some areas of Gujarat and Maharashtra has gone up to almost INR 50,000 - 1,00,000.
