Out of space: Residents say rainwater harvesting systems not feasible in North Chennai
| Thursday | 22nd August, 2019
For most residents of North Chennai, the only space available to install the RWH pipes is the narrow streets.
Meanwhile, water experts too feel that setting up Rain Water Harvesting structures are geographically not possible in many places.
Janakarajan said that existing RWH structures in some places are unscientific and it would be wise if the government reclaims the traditional rainwater harvesting structures such as aeries, ponds and tanks.
Sekhar Raghavan of Rain Centre said RWH structures are site specific and soil specific.
Corporation officials believe common RWH systems on road corners could bring the households in narrow streets of north Chennai into the RWH system.
