| Thursday | 22nd August, 2019
By Express News ServiceCHENNAI: The State government’s measures to make installation of Rain Water Harvesting (RWH) structures mandatory, will not affect economically backward sections of the population and those living in smaller spaces, said Corporation officials.
“Our priority is making RWH structures mandatory for larger properties like commercial establishments.
The city corporation has also decided not to insist on RWH systems in encroached lands so that encroachments would not be legitimised.
Meanwhile, the city corporation is planning on constructing 15,000 roadside community recharge wells -around 1000 in each zone.
A committee has also been formed to frame guidelines for grey water recycling in apartments and other large properties.
