Open Well Recharge System – Community Project

By | June 6, 2016

In Ashok Nagar Hubbali, SRDS has commenced work on a community well. Ms Gayatri Prabhu has been working tirelessly to convince the society people to raise funds to restore their old well. Built in approximately 1950, the first Prime Minister of India visited and inaugurated this society After his visit they dug this well.

Now silted up and dry for the past 10-15 years this well is 50 feet deep. There is 10 feet of silting up – as the local people have thrown many idols etc in there during Ganpatti Festival .. so our first work is the de-silting and cleaning of that material so that the rich residue can be used on the gardens.

The work will take 5- 10 days to complete and once restored will serve approximately 100 plus dwellings. SRDS will build 4 soak pits to filter the rain water which will be harvested from the rooftop before directing it into the open well.

Open well recharge can be a very effective method of rain water harvesting.

    Its a wonderful work that you guys are carrying out in region. In haryana we are also facing similar issue of water table going down each year. We would like to start an awareness program regarding rain water harvesting and bore-well recharging techniques. Can you provide us any kind of help in terms of conducting sessions or pointing towards any associated NGO’s working in Haryana, that would be great.
