We have endeavored to introduce these types of water management techniques. All the buildings at Avani campus have tanks in the basement where harvested rainwater is stored. A storage of almost 550,000 liters of rainwater at the campus alone meets our water needs for more than half the year. The same method of harvesting rainwater is employed at the field centres in Sukna, Dharamgarh, Digholi and Chanakana, where together another 127,000 litres of water is harvested. Avani has also helped set up a similar water harvesting system in nine schools in the Bageshwar and Pittorgarh districts, harvesting another 270,000 litres of water.
In addition to rainwater harvesting, Avani has built a wastewater treatment system, where all water consumed on the campus is recycled through a series of anaerobic and aerobic treatment to obtain good quality water for irrigating the community kitchen garden.
