What does it mean to be water neutral?
As Mr Alok Kuchlous, explained through his eloquent presentation that water neutral is being able to discharge back into the earth the same amount of water which they had drawn from it. His apartment uses RO water in basins, showers and also in toilets. It maintains a big swimming pool. With all this water usage can an apartment still be water neutral? As Mr. Alok puts it,

“The answer is a big resounding YES”.

Presentation by Alok Kuchlous a Resident of TZed Homes of Bangalore, and active participant in the initiative for making TZed Homes a Water Neutral campus! Presented in the Water Workshop conducted by ApartmentADDA on 21-June-2014.
