Transcript

  • 1. Rain Water Harvesting System at Brigade Millenium (Cassia Block) - Shankar Rao. Refurb India. (refurb_india@yahoo.com) As presented in “The Water Workshop for Apartment Communities” Organized by ApartmentADDA.com
  • 2.  
  • 3.
    • One of the earliest high rise apartment blocks in South Bangalore.
    • The 5 blocks named after flowers:
    • Cassia
    • Mayflower
    • Magnolia
    • Laburnum
    • Jacaranda
  • 4.
    • All 16 storey-tall with roof catchment of 2200 sq.m except for Laburnum.
    • Today’s presentation is about :
    • CASSIA BLOCK
  • 5. Rainwater Disposal – Pre RWH
    • Roof top water from 15 th /16 th floor.
    • Down pipes 27 nos. led down chutes in the building center to Basement.
    • Down pipes connected to 7 exit pipes.
    • Rainwater flows out to Municipal drain/STP/open wells.
  • 6. FLOW CHART – STORE & USE
  • 7. FLOW CHART – STORE & USE
  • 8. The Challenge
    • Topography of Cassia not conducive for direct flow to ground sumps.
    • Necessitates pumping from Basement level.
    • Transit storage became mandatory.
    • Rains – unpredictable in timing, duration and intensity.
    • Manual monitoring/Control/Action undependable.
  • 9. The Solution - Fully automatized system
    • PHASE I:
    • Programmable logic control to start/stop pumping depending upon flow/storage status.
  • 10. The Solution - Fully automatized system
    • PHASE II:
    • Action to meet the following ‘what if’ emergencies:
    • Filter block leading to Column Water Build-up.
    • Basement tanks full & ground sumps full and rain continues.
  • 11. The Solution - Fully automatized system
    • REMEDIES:
    • Bypass valves made to change flow status.
    • Manual intervention for the above ruled out.
    • Self-operated mechanism activated – How?
  • 12. The Solution - Fully automatized system
    • INNOVATIVE HYDRAULIC ACTIVATION SYSTEM:
    • No electric power is required, hence no dependence on power supply.
    • Water pressure available from roof top tank invoked.
  • 13. The Solution - Fully automatized system
    • MECHANISM EMPLOYED:
    • A) Incase of tank overflow,
    • a float valve moves up &
    • opens water flow from roof top.
    • This action hydraulically moves
    • the bypass valves appropriately.
  • 14. The Solution - Fully automatized system
    • B) Incase of a Filter block,
    • hydrostatic pressure builds up,
    • activating a spring-loaded lever,
    • thus opening the inlet valve;
    • Pressure activates hydraulically
    • to move bypass valves to
    • appropriate position.
  • 15. Rainwater Utilization
    • BWSSB stipulates 70-75% water utilization from roof top catchment.
    • Open paved catchment – no stipulation.
  • 16. CATCHMENT AND RAIN YIELD AT CASSIA Type Total area in sq.m Storage & use Recharge Total harvested % Used A B C B+C Roof top 2200 1870 210 2080 95 Paved open 2800 0 1440 1440 51 Unpaved 687 0 500 500 73 TOTAL 5687 1870 2150 4020 72
