Rainy Filter’s Harvest Rainwater to Avert Water Crisis

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Groundwater is now met most of the nation’s drinking water and agricultural demands. Groundwater is used for irrigation in about 89% of cases, with the remaining 9% going to domestic and 2% to industrial applications. The Central Ground Water Board estimates that groundwater resources provide 85% of rural needs and about 50% of urban needs for water. We must immediately shore up these resources on a massive scale because groundwater supplies are rapidly running out. If we don’t, we will perish. The recently established Jal Shakti Ministry is expected to vigorously advocate for any solution, no matter how simple, that can help us navigate the looming water crisis. One possibility is collecting rainwater.

Many frequently dismiss the idea of “rainwater harvesting” as “nothing new” and a technology that has already been tried and tested on a lesser scale. Whether it can be done on a bigger scale is still being determined. The nation now needs an all-systems approach to capturing ocean water, interconnecting rivers, and using river water efficiently.
The potential for collecting rainwater is enormous. The nation receives enough annual rainfall to meet the needs of its 1.3 billion inhabitants, regardless of monsoon vagaries. The Central Water Commission estimates India only needs up to 3,000 billion cubic meters of water annually. Every year, it receives about 4,000 billion cubic meters of rain.
Successful use of rainwater collection systems may be seen at Infosys campuses. Infosys has 25 lakes, 410 “V” wire injection wells, and rooftop rainwater collection systems throughout its sites.
As a result, the amount of water used per person in 2017 was 8.33% lower than in 2016. Whether rainwater harvesting can be expanded over more significant regions has examples of rainwater collection that address this.
Farmland Rainwater Harvesting Systems are working on a five-acre rainwater gathering project in Chikmagalur. This test, one of the largest ever done, occurs in a severely dry region. On-site, there are seven “V” wire injection wells and gravity exclusively collects rainfall. The nearby villages should benefit from the significant rise in the groundwater table. The implementation of water neutrality comprises zero waste and water recycling. This large-scale experiment is reproducible everywhere and on any scale.
When such actions are being taken, state governments must implement a vigorous rainwater collection program and control borewell sinking. The Karnataka government should oversee the effective implementation of “Krishi Honda” (agricultural ponds) in communities and design such a strategy.
Governments ought to encourage the collection of rainwater. The Union government may reduce the Goods and Services Tax (GST) on rainwater harvesting equipment from 18% to zero as a starting point.
The National Water Mission’s objectives must now be put into practice.
Improved above- and below-ground storage, rainwater collecting, and fair and effective management structures are commendable objectives. It needs to develop into a national mission.
