22 Oct RAIN WATER HARVESTING EXEMPTION:ASSAIL DECISION
Govt. of Kerala announced a decision to exempt all house holds under 8 cents from installing a water harvesting structure. It is the foolish decision of first order. In Kerala at least 70% of house holds are built within an area of 8 cents or lower. The water harvesting decision like it was done TN, should have been insisted up on the home owners without any area stipulation. Every drop of water needs to to be harvested and saved either for future use by the harvester or be allowed to recharge the aquifers by allowing it to seep through the top soil. This will have very impressive consequences.
There is a green line there. By the time 2050 arrives Mr. Paloli and will be dead and gone. But the implications of our action will be suffered by our grand children in Kerala. They will squarely blame us all for our near ignorant decisions.
Mr. Government keep taking such “wonderful” decisions.
Yet another thing the govt. shall do is to order setting aside of a space around the plinth of the building that will ensure free seepage of water to the subsurface. This wuill ensure recharging of subsurface rocks.
