Development of more than 12 K Rainwater structure by Odisha's Govt (The Economic Times)

Rainwater harvesting (RWH) is a technique in which we collect and store rainwater rather than letting it runoff. Rainwater is usually collected from rooftops of buildings and stored in tanks or deep pit wells, with aquifer and reservoir with percolation, to restore underground water levels. The storage of water can also be done by domestic usage of water for planting kitchen gardens. Rainwater harvesting is one of the oldest methods to store water and use it without payments. This also helps in restoring the ground-level of water for a better future.

       By 10th July 2021, the Odisha Government has decided to create 12,000 rainwater harvesting structures and the housing and urban development department has launched a campaign on the theme, "Catch the rain, where and when it falls" across all 114 urban local bodies of the States under MUKTA programme.

       The State started this campaign in April with plans of constructing at least 5,000 rainwater harvesting structures before the onset of southwest monsoon in Odisha. This campaign was held under the leadership of Principal Secretary of HUD, G. MathiVathanan to achieve their desired goals.

       As a result, the campaign was held in a great way and they achieved their goals of constructing more than 10,000 Rainwater harvesting structures within two months. These RWHS are low-cost structures designed with hydro-geological parameters in the States. Pratap Jena, Housing and Urban development minister congratulated the great efforts of the department to achieve their goals.
