RAIN WATER HARVESTING


Monsoon has reached in all parts of India and many parts of country are affected from flood problem and almost every major city is facing water logging problem. If we see few weeks back water scarcity is a very big problem in many cities of the country. If we think carefully about the situation we the humans had reversed the nature cycle because we consume natural resources like anything and never plans and works to recharge them. In every monsoon season media highlights the problems of water logging, floods pictures and videos from all over India and we just pass comment about these problem but never wakes up and moves towards solution of problems.

Rain Water  must be reserved and stored for lateral usage as we knows that ground water level has gone down drastically and many regions are in dark zone because of non recharge of ground water. The reason behind non recharging is increasing in concrete area and non adoption of methods, techniques and ways of RAIN WATER HARVESTING. Rain water must be harvested in all aspects of life and at every place whether it is residential, commercial or industrial. Also our farmers must be educated to store and use rain water. On the part of government motivation in form of subsidy, guidance and awareness program etc. required to be executed at ground level not only in papers. Generally schemes / project of government takes too long to reach / execute and by the time project really starts and takes speed the time is already passed and projects/scheme become irrelevant.
For rain water harvesting Macro & Micro both kinds of methods need to be adopted.

Technical innovation required for above which are commercial viable at small and large levels.

Monsoon Raining

In this raining season whole city is flooded with water. Each highway, road, street and major points, chowks are facing water logging problem. Traffic jams due to water logging is a major hurdle. The above scene is common everywhere. Every year this situation occurs and before monsoon government, political leaders and local administration makes big claims about their preparations and activities all of which totally fails when rain starts. Sewerage system is cleaned before every monsoon but still when rain starts 3-4 feet water logging is common on all highways and roads. Recently Gurgaon Traffic jam on NH-8 and at IFFCO Chowk, Honda Chowk, etc. really created an emergency situation and whole administration / government is failed in that scenario.

I think the problem lies somewhere in basic cities planning of India because all main metro cities of India because water draining system / sewerage system is not designed / working properly. The water exist / drainage system is designed keeping in mind initial stage and scope for future development taken on that place in coming years is not estimated. Maintenance is also another major problem as government departments and red-tapism/bureaucracy is a major hurdle in implementation and completion of any work.  The solid waste/polythene during the rainy season blocks the flow of water in drainages/sewerages which in turn generates water logging problem and by the time local administration / government agencies takes action to clear that the situation becomes worst.

Another reason of above problem is that no open land area is now to absorb water inside the cities and everything is covered with concrete which stops water absorption power of earth.

Over and above that it must be thinked that how much loss of life and property happens due to above mentioned problems. Water logging damage the roads and accidents happens on these roads.

IF ANYBODY OF YOU KNOWS THE SOLUTION PLEASE WRITE.

Raining in Faridabad

Today their is a lot of rain in Faridabad which give much needed relief to the people suffering from heat wave but when I left home for office in morning i found that all the roads are logged with rain water. The only reason behind water logging is choking of drainage system. I hope the city administration may awake from its sleep today and may start its drive to clean the city drainage and sewerage system in the coming week. The water logging will damage the newly constructed roads and create bad patches on roads.

Further it is worth to be mentioned that not only the city administration is responsible for choking of drainage system but we the citizen also equally responsible because we throw the waste, dump and debris of our house outside and never cares what will happen on the road. Sometime when we construct of our house and office we throw the debris on the road or on the blank place, green belt, park etc. which generally create problem for others.

So we must think that if we want good roads, clean cities then we must make ourselves discipline and on the part of Government its must plugin all the loopholes in system and should immediately start the cleaning of sewerage/drainage system.

Rain Water Harvesting

The ground Water level is going down with every passing day and in view of increasing temperature the demand of water has gone up and extraction of ground water through tubewells / hand pumps are very high. To save water and increase the level of ground water different techniques of rain water harvesting must be immediately started on pilot basis in some cities of NCR(National Capital Region) as the season of rain will start in coming months.

Every new group housing scheme which is sanctioned by government must be passed on the condition of rain water harvesting

existing group housing societies must be motivated to adopt the system.

in residential areas with the help of NGO and RWA',s residents must be pushed to implement rain water harvesting system as individual or group.

Each society park / community centre must have ground water recharge facility.

In small village rain water must be diverted to existing ponds or by creating new ponds.

Everywhere it should be done in a scientific approved way. We are standing at last stage so we don't have the time to think, ITS ACTION TIME. BEGIN NOW.

After Rain

Thankfully yesterday some rain spell at area of old Faridabad made the environment cooler but water logged at various places like Sec-16 near Motimahal area, 16-17-18 chowk, etc. made the situation very critical because of inaction of various government agencies. If you go from Old Faridabad to Naharpar the road is in worst condition and pedestrians can not move due to single road and encroachment on pavements. 2-3 months back road has been digged for laying of bigger sewerage line and mud is not removed which is blocking all entry points made for water exit. Whenever any scooter/car/truck/bus moves in logged water the peoples standing on the roadside are totally wet due to water waves. Think about small students who are ready to go school and person who is waiting for his office cab and suddenly due to a fast moving vehicle his clothes are wet and dirty, what is the solution of this problem. It is all because of lack of action by government administration.

As per my observation generally government spent's a big amount on cleaning of sewerage before monsoon every year and possibly the same has been done this year too but this year possibly the activity has gone only on papers and taxpayers money eaten by corrupt individuals or gang of corrupt officials/contractors/others.

Monsoon

Yesterday a spell of pre monsoon rain comes to Delhi, Bihar, Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan, Uttarakhand giving much needed relief. As per expectation monsoon will reach north India by July 12. As we all knows that in previous two weeks due to so much heat everyone is talking about rain and delay of monsoon seeded a fear in government, farmers and everybody that this year we have to face a drought like situation and Indian economy which is already under pressure due to Global Meltdown will further decline and prices of food items which are already very high will further go up. Problem of Power & Water is so big because of declining water levels in major dams like Tehri, Bakhra, etc. and major rivers are on the verge of end. Many parts of the northern india farmers who are dependent on rivers water through canals may not get water and production of kharib may be affected.

So lets pray & hope that rain will come soon and all problems gets solved.

Environmental Changes

Due to heavy raining flood in Bihar, Assam and Orissa many peoples are dead and lakhs of peoples gets displaced while crops on lacs of hectare submerged in flood water and it is hard to estimate the loss of other assets. It is all result of wrong steps like industrialization, Cutting forests on large scale, etc. which affects the environment of our planet ‘Earth’ and we all knows about Global Warming. Even if you want to analyze, see the Mt. Everest picture of 1970 and see the picture of today, you will immediately feel the change. If we continue to play with the nature & environment of our planet it will become a danger for human beings.

 

Every individual should put his effort to improve the environment.

 

Please send me the ways how the rain water can be used so that no flood occurs and our environment did not gets affected. 

2008 RAIN

This year monsoon is very good all over India and especially in North India, I hope that crops will be very good this season. I want to mention / discuss regarding the raining/monsoon in our country on following points:

·        RAIN WATER HARVESTING

If we could harvest rain water it will solve the all problem of water faced by every citizen especially in summers. But as per my knowledge we are not looking forward in this direction neither the government had made any rule and regulation regarding rain water harvesting nor any NGO is working in this direction.  We generally construct houses starting from 20 sq. yards to 1000 sq. yards and spent between 3-5 lacs to 15–25 crores for construction of house but never we thinks about creating a system for rain water harvesting and the same water blocks the drainage system and due to that water gets lodged on roads .

·        WATER LOGGING / DAMAGED ROADS

We have seen and experienced many problems due to logged water on each and every roads and our daily routine gets highly affected due to same. The solution is to make proper drainage system and the regular maintenance / cleaning of drainage system must be in place. High quality roads must be constructed in scientific manner overtaking the corruption involved so that they do not brake in rainy season.

·        Flood Control

If we use the rain water in scientific way then we can also save loss of life and asset happens due to floods in rainy season, as happened this in Bihar and Assam.

·        INFLATION

Inflation will come under control up to some extent as predicted by our some economy financial experts.

 

 I am sure that if we take imitative about above mentioned points it will provide so too benefits to our nation.

 

Kindly suggest me more points for the same.
