With summer approaching, residents welfare associations (RWAs) in the city will focus on reducing wastage of water, lesser consumption and use of waste water for various purposes to reduce consumption of treated water.The RWA members of different areas will also ensure that storm water drains and rainwater harvesting pits are cleaned before the monsoon so that water can easily flow into pits.
In 2016, Suncity Township in Sector 54, Golf Course Road, had dug pits to prepare for the monsoon. They dug four pits, each 40-foot deep, to help recharge groundwater. “We have been suffering because of flooding in our township; this (the pits) will benefit everyone if the water collected is allowed to recharge the underground aquifers,” VMK Singh, general secretary, Suncity RWA, said.

Park View Residency in Sector 3 has three fully operational rainwater harvesting pits. “We get them cleaned every year and 50% water supply comes from groundwater. It helps in maintaining groundwater level,” SC Kumar, president of the RWA, said.
Nirvana Country in Sector 50 has also dug 14 rainwater harvesting pits to facilitate groundwater recharge. “Water collected from rooftops will be channelled in these pits and it will then seep into the ground. We have connected every house to the rainwater harvesting pit,” Sanu Kapila, president, Nirvana Country RWA, said.
