  14. 14. WATER & SANITAION MANAGEMENT >Avisek Das Purpose: To provide safe drinking water in sufficient quantity ( 70 liters/day/head) at a their door step d t •To execute & operate the project though village community •To built awareness & capacity building in the community 14
  15. 15. WATER & SANITATION MANAGEMENT IN BHIMRANA VILLAGE >Avisek Das Bhimrana is located 3 kms away from Mithapur that has average population of about 5000.There is no source of fresh water in this area. Since 15 years, the village is totally dependent on tanker based water supply. Projects i l P j t implemented to solve the issue : t dt l th i • Construction of Roof Rain water harvesting structures (RRWHS) with capacity of 10,000 liters in 220 houses • Construction of elevated t k of 1 2 l kh lit C t ti f l t d tank f 1.2 lakh liters capacity it • Construction of sump of 1 lakh liter capacity • Pipeline networking connecting to every door step • Installation of RO (Reverse Osmosis) plant of capacity 2000 liter/hour 15
  16. 16. IMPACT TO THE COMMUNITY >Avisek Das In short, Bhimrana village has gained • Continuous supply of drinking water throughout the year • Availability of water at their door step there by reducing time span of 3hrs/day in collecting water from near by places • Enhanced the storage capacity of rain water ( 22 lakh liters/ annum) • Additional supply of RO water ( 2000 liters /hr) • Established village level organization ( Paani samithi ) capable of operating the e t e system t out a y e te a support entire syste without any external suppo t 16
  17. 17. SALINITY INGRESSMENT >Avisek Das Purpose • To prevent the salinity ingress by constructing “ salinity bhandaras” in the coastal area • To reclaim saline soil suitable for agricultural activities • To provide safe drinking water in coastal villages by constructing rain roof water harvesting structures • To minimize the water usage by water saving technologies 17
  18. 18. SALINITY INGRESS IN DWARKA TALUKA >Avisek Das • Dwarka Taluka is surrounded three sides by seawater (Arabian sea). Due to this, salinity ingress is the perennial problem prevailing in this area. As time passes by, the underground sweet water turned into brackish water because of which the soil became saline - unfit for agricultural activities & availability of drinking water. Efforts taken to prevent salinity ingressment : • Construction of “bhandaras”( underground impervious layer & check dam above the ground) - 4 nos • Construction of RRWHS( Rain roof water harvesting structures) – 600 nos in 6 villages • Land reclamation – 60 hectares a d ec a at o ecta es 18
  19. 19. SALINITY INGRESS – IMPACT >Avisek Das • 60 Hectares of agriculture waste land reclaimed • Additionally ,Irrigation facility made available for 150 hectares agricultural land • Water from 15 wells turned from brackish to sweet water due to harvesting of rain water in “bhandaras” “bh d ” 19
  20. 20. WATER MANAGEMENT - SUSTAINABLITY >Avisek Das 1. The most important aspect of this is active involvement and capacity building of the community. 2. Our role is to facilitate the process, add last mile financing funds where ever required and ensure that benefits reach the economically weaker section 3. The management and ownership of all structures rests with the village. This h Thi has resulted in a system of ownership, responsibility and creation of a lt d i t f hi ibilit d ti f participatory environment. 4. Every structure built has and every activity undertaken has been selected, implemented and regulated by village committees, user groups etc. p g y g , g p 5. Distribution, use and payment for water is decided by them and from the collections many villages have themselves been able to construct other dams paying 70-80% of the cost of these structures. 20
  21. 21. WATER MANAGEMENT – RISKS INVOLVED >Avisek Das 1. Conflict because of unfair and inequitable use and distribution of water. - Through transparent processes, sharing of information and facilitation. 2. 2 The risk of people moving towards high yielding high return intensive water use yielding, crops leading to water resource depletion. - The IEC component of project targets optimization of use of water and appropriate agricultural interventions. g - Continuous capacity building on water management. - Trying different appropriate agriculture models with indigenous crops 21
  22. 22. WATER MANAGEMENT - IMPACT >Avisek Das 1. 152 MCFT capacity created benefiting 86villages. 2. Direct economic gain per year is approximately Rs. 200 - 250 Lakhs. 3. 3 Indirect gain has been improved water quality and availability. Over and above availability invisible benefits of the program are • Capacity building of people & Community empowerment. • Ownership of assets created • Increased awareness and village cohesion. • Community advocacy and participation in policy formation 4. Today many committees have repaired and strengthened their structures and built other structures with the money collected from the village contribution. Their access to district authorities and banks has increased. They have also established more than 180 Self-Help-Groups that are engaged in micro-finance. 22
