Press Release, Jul 21, 2019, 6:10 PM IST

Manipal: Given the scarcity of water in the summer months, Manipal Academy of Higher Education, Manipal has come up with yet another plan to augment its water supply on the campus. The Project team came up with the idea of using a two-acre piece of land near End Point to harvest rain water.

Deputy Director Projects, MAHE, Mr Ivan D’Souza said that the land has been dug up to hold eight million litres of water which can charge the existing bore wells. The water body, spread on two acres has a varying depth of eight and 10 feet to hold all the water. “And, it will be called “Mini-Palla”, said Mr D’Souza.

He added, “As a safety measure, fencing has been erected all around the water body. MAHE’s plans to construct two more such water bodies on its campus”. Rain water is harvested, conserved and recycled scientifically. The University has elaborate rain water harvesting and ground water recharging systems, It already has stations where rain water from roof terraces is collected, filtered through sand filters and stored in underground sumps to be used for general purposes by students and staff.
