Coming to water supply, Palava is already leaving all the prominent problems behind, being a leading candidate for becoming India’s first smart city. Palava has been designed to provide water and power supply to its residents and also, conserve it.
Most prudently designed architecture and planning of the city makes life as convenient as possible while striking a balance between ecology by contributing to keeping the environment clean and healthy. Well, exemplifying the huge water harvesting initiative, Palava Lakeshore Greens add another star to its glory.
How Lakeshore Greens Championed Rain Water Harvesting
The dedicated team of Palava city managed to bring Mumbai’s attention towards water harvesting by installing an innovative massive billboard featuring a funnel tank with a capacity of 3,000 liters. Mumbai’s water shortage is not alien to anyone in the country, in fact, the most drought-hit village is in Maharasthra but only fewer steps are being taken to combat the same.
Lodha Palava city is not all glitter and no gold. Being a number one real estate developer of the country, Lodha Palava understands its social responsibility and propagate it via such actions. By propagating this massive idea of rainwater harvesting with its huge billboard set up outside Ghansoli Railway Station, it managed to collect and filter 9,000 liters of water in a month. This amount of water helped in supporting the nearby shops and people living near that area. Additionally, the remaining water helped in combating water shortage of Navi Mumbai slums in Nerual Dharavi. Around 50 to 60 families were supported with that harvested water which was used solely for washing and cleaning purposes.
The focus of this initiative was to deploy a sustainable solution and portray the power of a simple idea that can aid thousands in need. Surviving on water tanks while every year gallons of rainwater gets wasted in this monsoon disposed city, this effort helped the slum dwellers survive longer on their corporation water supply.
Rain Water Harvesting in Lodha Palava Lakeshore Greens
Steady water supply to the city is promised and is being done responsibly by implementing rainwater harvesting measures and water reuse. Palava city has partnered with companies like General Electric to reuse 100 percent of wastewater for landscaping, cooling, and other non-potable activities.
The city has implemented rainwater harvesting measures and maintains the water- table to ensure sustainability. The city has installed highly equipped rainwater harvesting system divided into three main stages:
- Collecting & transporting rainwater
The catchment area in Lakeshore Greens is prominent where rainwater gets collected directly. A paved area like the courtyard is made where water is collected and conduits carry rainwater from the catchment or rooftop to the harvesting system.
A filter chamber is filled with filtering media to remove debris and dirt from the water before it enters the storage tank or recharge structure.
- Storage in tanks for reuse
The harvested water is stored in storage tanks for immediate usage, which is designed according to the water requirements of the city. Existing non-potable water storage tanks in the city can also be used to store the harvested rainwater. The collected rainwater is used to recharge the groundwater levels by using structures like dug wells, borewells, recharge trenches and recharge pits.
Taking measure to keep the water clean by not allowing polluting activities to take place near the catchment area is another major area that Lodha Palava Lakeshore Greens believe in and successfully practice it.
Advantages of Water Harvesting for the city:
- Provide drinking water
- Increase groundwater levels
- Reduce store water discharges, urban floods and overloading of sewage treatment plants
