Surface water is inadequate to meet our demand and we have to depend upon ground water. Water harvesting provides an independent water supply during regional water restrictions and often supplements the main supply. Consistent water harvesting has helped us store 22 lac cubic meters of water in the mined out area. We also accumulate rain water through roof top water storage and in mined out pits and small pits for use in other areas of the plant.
