Rainwater harvesting

Adarsh Foundation makes conscious efforts to look at sustainable solutions to help protect environment, wherever we work. Adarsh Foundation has set up rainwater harvesting at the government school, Janana Hospital, and many government buildings in Sirohi district of Rajasthan. These measures have improved the level of ground water in the area and helped the residents get cleaner water in their homes.

Rainwater harvesting is the accumulation and deposition of rainwater for reuse on-site, rather than allowing it to run off.

Adarsh Foundation has been doing Rain Water Harvesting in Sirohi since 2015.

  • TDS (Total Dissolved Solids) level in groundwater has come down to 1200-1300ppm from 2200 ppm.
  • 40 lakh litres of water has been harvested over 1 lakh sq ft area, so far.
  • 1 open well, 2 step-wells and 13 tubewells have been replenished and 16 buildings covered in Sirohi.
