Systems – Rainwater Harvesting, Groundwater Recharge, Biosand Filtration, Greywater Irrigation and Recharge
Krishna Prasad Simkhada is an active soul indulging in various business ventures and social activities. His environmental consciousness along with water problems at his house led him to contact technicians who install such systems at household level. SmartPaani’s senior technician Gokul Dangal came in contact and then his whole house was turned into a model of excellent water conservation. He has a rainwater harvesting system and biosand filter for well water both of them combined give him year round supply of water for his house. Besides these two systems, grey water (soap water from kitchen, shower, basin) from his house is first treated in a soakpit and then only sent to the drainage system. Even his garden is green throughout the year, without having to directly use other water it due to these soakpits. He is happy that he is contributing a bit to protect his environment by using these systems.
What he has to say about these systems? “Filtering greywater from Kitchen and showers and recharged in the garden will lessen dryness of the soil during dry season. Also, monsoon water when filtered and collected will definitely solve water problems. Last year I used to buy so many tankers of water to meet my family’s daily needs, this year I have not bought any! These systems not only solve water problems but also improve the environment and conserve nature.”
