Udaan technically supported the concept, designing and execution of the Rainwater Harvesting project at Vehloli 15th March, 2011. Dr Ajit Gokhale of Natural Solutions was instrumental in this turnkey project.We created a reservoir in the hilly terrain of the Trust’s property and have helped conserve 200-250 million litres of water every monsoon. This has enhanced the greenery in the surrounding areas, enhanced the underground water table, increased the vegetation output in the nearby fields of villagers. Fish in the lake so created have become a source of nutrition and income for the nearby villagers.
This project was nominated for a National Award by Green Globe Foundation.
