One Billion Drops
Recharging ground water through aquifers is the most sustainable method of storing natural water. One billion drops project is helping in ending water scarcity with rainwater conservation and percolation pits. More than 700 percolation wells have been built so far, in various parts of Bengaluru, Karnataka.
Rainwater is a natural water recharger, when not managed well it can lead to water scarcity. Rain water wastage is the most common existing issue which often leads to imbalance in the existence of groundwater, resulting either in flooding or drought. The project is helping water conservation by permeating rainwater to better storage facilities. Conserve and implement rainwater harvesting for sustainable resource usage, ensuring water security by recharging percolation pits through rainwater. Improve quality and accessibility of water resources for local communities.
