Apping the meagre rainfall

  • 14/04/2001

In Kachchh district of Gujarat , the Vivekanand Research and Training Institute of Mandvi has designed a number of innovative water recharging structures to capture the meagre and erratic rainfall in this semi-arid district. These structures permit repeated recharge of aquifers by utilisation of the periodic stormwaters, made possible by rapid percolation. The structures harvest more rain than their constructed capacity.
