All students came together for a street play in the village of chowdappanahlli and spread awareness not to waste water also to encouraged & motivate people to save rainwater.

The campaign distributed pamphlets with messages on water conservation techniques and its implementation at various levels. The play was on street of the village near government school and residential area. The participants took a pledge to save water, plant tree saplings and take efforts to preserve rainwater in storage tanks and waterbodies in their respective village.

In his address, The Village panchayat chairman has initiated steps to recharge wells construction and create rainwater harvesting strictures to save water.

People have been urged to implement rainwater harvesting mechanisms in homes and commercial buildings to save prevent ‘water run off’ during rains, he said.

CONCLUSION: It was observed that the Rainwater is mostly free from harmful chemicals, which makes it suitable for irrigation purposes. Another vital benefit is that it increases the productivity of aquifer resulting in the rise of groundwater levels and reduces the need for potable water.
