Rainwater harvesting at Eramalloor

Our Bureau

KOCHI: The South Indian Bank, as part of its village centric development programme, has set up a rainwater harvesting project at Chellanam panchayat near here in association with Women Initiative Network (WIN), Eramalloor.

The project, initiated under various development schemes of the bank, is aimed at setting up 40 rainwater harvesting tanks with a capacity of 5,000 litres each. It is expected that 120 families would benefit from this project as three families could use one unit. The bank had contributed Rs 3 lakh for the completion of the project.

The project was inaugurated by the DIG of Ernakulam Range, Ms R. Sreelekha. The Chellanam Panchayat in West Kochi had been experiencing acute shortage of drinking water for the last few years and the area was identified for the project by the bank under its various development schemes.
