If you are extracting groundwater excessively in hindsight lowering the water table, not to worry, rainwater harvesting just does the magic to replenish the water table! “Kathmandu Valley’s water table is falling fast as demand for water empties aquifers.”
Here is everything you need to know about rainwater harvesting.Whether you do rainwater harvesting for its cost-saving aspect, as a self-watering technique, as a way to irrigate an irregularly graded backyard or as a functional work of art, rainwater collection is a simple way to make the most out of your property’s natural resources, while spending very little of your resources—time and money.
Best Paani CEO, Sajal Pradhan, at Global Entrepreneurship Summit 2017 at Hyderabad, India. Best Paani represented Nepal at the 2017 Global Entrepreneurship Summit, a collaboration of Government of the United States, led by Ivanka Trump and the Government of India, led by Narendra Modi.
On 21st November 2017, Best Paani CEO, Ms. Sajal Pradhan, pitched on the importance of groundwater recharge systems for sustainable utilization of water resources in Nepal in the Tiger Pitch event hosted by US Embassy at FNCCI . Best Paani along with five other companies did pitching on their respective issues and her pitch was to lobby the government on how urgent it is to shift the attention towards groundwater recharge systems to mitigate the water scarcity in inevitable times of drought. All the five companies will be attending Global Entrepreneurship Summit India 2017 in Hyderabad, India from Tuesday November 28, 2017 to Thursday November 30, 2017 for putting up their issues on international platform. Best Paani wishes Ms. Pradhan all the best!
On September 6 2017, WWF Nepal chose Best Paani as its implementation partner for the installation of bio-sand filtration systems in 30 guard posts inside Chitwan National Park. This project was financially supported by WWF Nepal. These systems will now provide clean drinking water to approximately 450 users inside the Park.
The largest environmental challenge that Nepal faces today is mismanagement of water. Impure water has led to heightening waterborne diseases and in spite of being able to suffice water needs in seasons of drought, rainwater harvesting hasn’t received much attention in Nepal. Especially when water is sufficient, we care less of consuming rain water. Yes, it’s a matter of question if rainwater is safe to drink. So in this doubt, lab test has proven that harvested rainwater is 100% safe to drink after rainwater harvesting. Another substitute is bio-sand filtration. Even the jar water, that we are so confident and claim to be pure has been found of having contamination when tested so it’s a high time to switch our attention to affordable sustainable water purifying systems i.e. rainwater harvesting and bio-sand filtration. Best Paani installs cost effective rainwater harvesting and bio-sand filtration systems, and recharges the groundwater aquifer with the spillover.
Rainwater harvesting involves the collection of rainwater from rooftop and store it for later use. If stored properly it can fulfill the immense need of water in the seasons of drought. Episodic drought is inevitable sometimes and we need to be prepared beforehand to minimize the effects. Rainwater harvesting along with groundwater recharge can surpass any episodic droughts.
