To replenish rainwater as part of its Corporate Social Responsibility activity, C.R.I Group has tied up with Ladies Circle India to implement rainwater harvesting project in 50 Government Schools across India by executing a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU).
Mr.G.Soundararajan, Vice Chairman, C.R.I Group signed and presented the MOU to LMF Cr.Nidhi Gupta, President – Ladies Circle India in the presence of Mr.R.Boopathy, Chief Marketing Officer, C.R.I Group and LMF Cr.Poonam Bafna, CSR Convenor – Ladies Circle India Mr.G.Soundararajan, Vice Chairman – C.R.I Group, said “21 of the cities in India are going to run out of Ground water by 2020.
India is said to become water scarce country by 2025, 40% people in India may not have water to drink by 2030. Its high time we start not only to conserve water but also to replenish rainwater and divert it to mother earth for future use rather than letting rain drain” Ms.Poonam Bafna, CSR Convenor, Ladies Circle India, said “we have a long term vision to save our planet through our goal for Water Conservation.
The Intention for this project is to save water and recharge the ground water at the same time.” Rainwater harvesting Project in schools: Rainwater Harvesting (RWH) from roof in Schools is a simple low cost method technique through which rainwater is captured from the roof, filtered through an exclusive Rain tap unit (water filter) and then through the pipe line installed it reaches the underground sump.
This water is fresh and safe for drinking. Under this project Ladies Circle have identified 50 Government schools across India to the roof rainwater by providing Rain tap unit (Water filter) and necessary pipe line from the roof top to the Sump where ever required.
The Rain tap unit (Water filter) has very simple design and doesn’t need any maintenance. By opening the flush valve of the filter it clears all the dirt and leaves. It is 360 degree flexible “T” for ease of installation and is fitted with a SS 304 Wire mesh which allows filtration up to 130 microns.
Benefits of this RWH model include fresh drinking water, augmentation of fresh water storage, arrest of, saline water intrusion in fresh water, reduction of health risk and hazards, zero hardness : avoids treatment and wastage and rejuvenation of other source of water, said the programme organizers.
