Rain Water Harvesting

7.2.1: Describe two best practices successfully implemented by the Institution as per NAAC format provided in the Manual.

1. Rainwater harvesting (RWH) is the collection and storage of rain, rather than allowing it to run off.

We have large area of land eighty acres. Rainwater harvesting rooftop rainwater harvesting is used to provide drinking water, domestic water, water for livestock, water for small irrigation, and a way to replenish groundwater levels.

Our college constructed the rain water harvesting wells and collected the water and increase the ground water levels. Now a days day to day ground water levels are decreasing due to over use. Now, our college is implementing save water policy for future life. Water is an essential for every living organism. So, we need to save water.

 For this purpose we intended to construct rain water harvesting wells to collect the lotic rain water and sinking into the soil in order to increase the ground water levels. When drought occurs, rainwater harvested in past months can be used. If rain is scarce but also unpredictable, the use of a rainwater harvesting system can be critical to capturing the rain when it does fall.
