Best Paani designs and installs customized large, medium and small scale Ground Water Recharge Systems that recharge the ground water table with rain water from roof tops and open grounds. Best Paani offers three economically viable and environmentally sustainable methods of ground water recharge.
1. Best Paani Well Recharge:
Best Paani’s Well Recharge pushes back surface water into the groundwater system. Usually, a well recharge is one metre in diameter and six metres deep, lined with concrete rings with perforations that let water seep from the sides.
Rainwater that goes down terrace drains, and surface water flowing in storm water drains, can be filtered and recharged in open wells.
2. Best Paani Soak Pit Recharge:
Best Paani’s Soak Pit Recharge increases the ground water level by letting the water seep through the earth as it does in its natural process. We do a thorough soil test on the plot area to ensure maximum efficiency of the soak pit recharge system.
3. Best Paani Boring Recharge:
Best Paani’s Bore Recharge takes the least space out of the three ground water recharge methods. Recharge bores during the monsoons not only improves the quantity but also the quality of the well water. Rooftop rain water and surface runoff can easily be used to recharge bore wells after some basic filtration.
Our systems are made in accordance with the guidelines presented by ENPHO, Environment & Public Health Organization.
Ground Water Recharge through Rain Water Harvesting
Ground Water Recharge is a process in which surface water from precipitation, rain, rivers and other sources work their way into the subsurface, refilling the ground water supplies. It is an important part of the hydrological cycle which provides the earth with various environmental services.
Unfortunately, human constructions such as pavement and nature obstruct this natural cycle and this has adverse impacts in the environment included but not limited to:
1. Drying up of wells.
2. Increased frequency of earthquakes.
3. Increased cost of pumping and well infrastructure.
4. Increased magnitude, severity and frequency of floods, such as those in the Terai that increases every year.
5. Loss of wetland vegetation.
6. Loss of aquatic-terrestrial transition zones.
7. Loss of wildlife habitat and reduction in biodiversity.
8. Accelerated erosion.
9. Changes in surface albedo and related climate change.
10. Acceleration of earthquakes, including the Nepal Earthquake.
Ground Water Depletion is environmentally unjust to people who suffer it’s consequence; thus, humans have an ethical responsibility towards the environment and to other fellow animals to restore ground water to its original state through man made groundwater recharge.
It is important to monitor how much water is entering a supply of groundwater, as this influences how much water can safely be taken from groundwater supplies for human use without causing threats to the supplies. This is part of the Best Paani family organization’s long term goal.
