About "Rain Water Harvesting in Residential Layouts" topic:

It is common nowadays that every one voilates building bylaws while building houses in layouts. In most private layouts developed for low and middle income groups, no space is left for essential common facilities like parks, schools, play grounds, water supply system, water bodies etc. Roads and drainage systems are built in such a way that the rain water is trained go in to sea ultimately. Every one tries to dig bore well in their plot. There is no space around borewells to rechage them through rain water harvesting system.

It is highly desirable to have a comprehensive Plan for rain water harvesting and maintain water table in residential areas. Building bylaws should be ammended to incosider a proper water balance. If the water table is very low then FSI allowed should be reduced. Individually owned / provate bore wells should not be permitted in residential areas. All existing bore wells and water bodies should be declared as oublic properties and should be maintained collectively by the Association of residents. Rain water should be stored / used for recharging existing bore wells and water bodies.

It is true that the Govt failed to provide sufficient housing and water supply to the growing population. But as responsible citizens, we also need to address the population growth. If not even if the Govt is efficient, it can't solve.
