Mainstreaming rainwater harvesting in Noida

The overall deteriorating water situation in Noida both in terms of quantity and quality highlights the need for immediate interventions by way of using local water resources. If rainwater is utilized as a resource and managed properly, it has great potential to increase water supply, meet the water requirements of an increasing urban population and increase the overall economic potential of the area. The purpose of this report is to prepare a road map for mainstreaming rainwater harvesting (RWH) in the city. To accomplish this, a comprehensive exercise has been attempted to evaluate the recharge potential of the entire area of Noida as well as runoff available for recharge based on baseline data.
