Cybage set an example by harvesting Rain Water

May 22, 2014  

Almost 22 per cent of the total water supplied to the city goes to the industrial sector in Pune. After the drought situation two years ago and realising the dependency on water tankers, some big names in the industrial sector took to implementing rainwater harvesting methods (RWH). From garnering industry awards to saving up on money as need for water tankers gets eliminated, the benefits of the investment has now started trickling. When it comes to rainwater harvesting in the industrial sector, Cybage Software is one such company which has adopted rainwater harvesting quite successfully. The RWH systems were installed after the drought about two years ago.

Deepak Nathani, executive director said, “Keeping the water scarcity system in mind and the high dependency that we had on water tankers, we thought that installing a rainwater harvesting system would be prudent since, we have many terraces and we thought of tapping into the resources. We already have a sewage treatment plant at the company which is running successfully. Since our company is located on a slope region, I would say that we haven’t achieved 100 per cent success yet as the water gets trickled down. However, we have observed that our water in our bore-well is enough for gardening all year around, which earlier would have dried up sooner.”
