What is Rain Water Management?
Mukesh Chandra Sati: “Rain water management is the technique of preserving the rain water and a method of getting the water back into the ground instead of it flowing away. Using techniques such as digging trenches also known as thankia, making recharge pits between the trenches which are filled up with small stones and creating large ponds right on top of the hill are effective methods. This is usually done above the villages in the forest areas. Once the ponds are full, the water would flow into the trenches and then into the recharge pits therefore stopping the water from flowing away, preventing soil erosion and other such problems. As a result the important trees such as rhododendrons etc started growing better and the natural resource of the village which had dried up is now full again for the village people to use.”
