Bhilai Steel Plant already had the credit of contributing significantly in the national campaign for water conservation. In the same context, the residents from Bhilai and peripheral areas are being imparted technical information regarding rain water harvesting, and that too free of cost!

It may be mentioned that to ensure the easy availability of water round the year is certainly a matter of serious concern. Lack of sincere efforts for rain-water harvesting, and unbridled exploitation of the ground water resources, are adding to the prevailing water scarcity. Increased population and also the demand for more water per citizen, owing to the up-gradation in living standards, have also added to water shortage in each city, while due to changes in environmental conditions, rainfall every where is becoming irregular and also unpredictable. So, it should be considered as the top priority to implement all the possible measures for conserving water.

Rain water harvesting can be implemented at personal level and also through collective efforts. At the personal level, the water being wasted at tube wells, hand pumps and public wells can be conserved while replenishing ground water by digging soak-pits. After renovating and repairing ponds, check-dams, reservoirs, installation of rainwater harvesting system at public buildings, measures for conserving water by collective efforts by community can be implemented.

In the same context, the facility of free counseling can be availed from Sr. Manager, Dr R P Dewangan, working in Town Engineering Department of BSP. He will impart necessary information with the help of appropriate photographs and illustration. Dr Dewangan specifically stressed on the point that all necessary measures for conserving water can be implemented not only at residential quarters but also at all the big and small industrial establishments before the advent of rainy season, along with the measures for rainwater harvesting can be implemented.

It may be mentioned that with such implementation of improvised techniques, maximum number of individuals and institutions are already being facilitated in the region.
