Replenishing Water Through Community Water Harvesting Project, Neelamangala
In Neelamangala, Bangalore Rural, PepsiCo has partnered with ADI to protect and replenish water resources through the creation of water harvesting structures by introducing artificial recharge systems within water bodies. The water project at Neelamangala focuses on the creation of water harvesting structures in three villages—Thorecamphalli, Hosur and Tonchinkuppe, and also the installation of a roof-top rainwater harvesting structure in the T. Begur village. The goal of the project is to improve water resources in the community, recharge wells and increase the production of crops.
The project has created the potential to recharge 900 million litres of water per year. This benefits 4000 people through improved access of water resources within the community through recharging ground water.
