Rain Water Harvesting Potential of R. B. N. B. College Campus, Shrirampur

Dr. S. P. Cholke [3]


Abstract: Last few years not only Ahmednagar district but also many parts of Maharashtra are facing drought due to scanty rainfall. Most of the water resources are being rapidly exploited without recharging, which leads to increased water scarcity. Therefore, conservation and preservation of water resources is need of the hour. To tackle this problem a study was undertaken to evaluate the potential for water saving by using rainwater harvesting in R. B. N. B. college campus, Shrirampur. The total catchment area of college was calculated as 61840.64 sq. m. Using average annual rainfall data and catchment area rainwater harvesting potential has been calculated as 16718630 litres per annum. The demand of water per year has been estimated to be 22859395 litres out of that 21311500 litres water is extracted from two bore wells. The study clearly shows that the amount of rainwater harvesting potential is 78.44 % of the total ground water demand of college.
