Noida: The depleting groundwater level has been a serious cause of concern. There are only few people who pay attention to saving every drop of water. The residents of Aravali Apartments, a residential society in Sector 34, Noida, surely belong to that category.
They have come up with an idea of reusing waste water. They are reusing waste water coming out from RO water purifiers at homes.
Dharmendra Sharma, President of the Resident Welfare Association (RWA) said, “Most of the residents have extended support to the initiative as they are reusing waste water for cleaning up utensils and watering plants in the garden.”
“The initiative is aimed at reducing waste water as each drop of water is important for us,” he added.
Sharma said that they have a water purifier, with capacity to store 80 litres of water, installed outside the society. It is placed at a location which is very accessible to pedestrians, commuters and maids.
He said, “We had observed that large quantity of water used to be wasted in purification process. The wastage ratio of water is very high. Only one litre out of every four litres is drinkable. Keeping this wastage in mind, the residents came forward for its reuse.”
Sharma informed that they are storing the waste water in big buckets and using them for washing cars, and home surface and water plants. He said that efforts are being made to conserve rain water as well. They are planning to set up rain water harvesting system at their houses in coming times.
