Creating Rainwater Harvesting Potential

To increase the volume of water available to the rural and urban population, we initiated Project Refill and Project Dhan at Sriperumbudur.

Mallaithulli Uyirthuli – training employees, harnessing life

i. Project Refill – Building a Rainwater Harvesting Structure

  • During the year, we built 95 structures with the potential recharge of approximately 26 million litres
  • We engage employees through a programme called ‘Mallaithulli Uyirthuli’. With this programme, more than 50 employees participate in training and creating awareness about rainwater harvesting

ii. Project Dhan – Reutilisation of water bodies

  • More than 20 million litres of potential created in the Kiliyar Sub Basin, a tributary of Palar river
  • We created awareness among farmers through a programme called ‘Vayalagam’, where we encouraged farmers to contribute during project execution and take ownership of maintaining it after completion
  • Around 300 farmers reaped the benefits of this project
