One of the biggest concerns for Bengaluru residents is the the availability of water in apartment complexes. Furthermore, because of the dearth of water, several real estate developers are not able to figure out sustainable methods of having green surroundings.
Bengaluru’s water table is getting depleted rapidly even though we receive high rainfall. Therefore, it is of paramount importance for us to be able to harvest the existing rainwater. When planning apartments, it is important to ensure that we collect rainwater from all available open areas and exposed surfaces such terraces, walkways and other open areas in large sumps, which can then be reused.
Properties can also create rain gardens using native plants and mulch soil, which help in percolating clean water into the ground. Rain water collected from gutters and downpipes are then directed to these rain gardens to avoid any wastage of water.
Yard Water Collection
Cemented spaces often end up collecting a lot of water, but this water just ends up evaporating. In order to prevent this loss, apartment complexes can be designed to have gutters and drains, which collect almost all the yard water in a sump. This water can then be used to water the gardens and for cleaning purposes.
Sewage Treatment Plants
All AARNA properties come completely equipped with a Sewage Treatment Plant (STP). Waste water from different houses is purified in the STP and is then used for any landscaping needs. This method is completely safe and ensures that we are able to recycle water while expanding our green coverage. This greatly reduces our dependence on outside sources of water and ensures that all water is optimally utilized.
Bathrooms are one of the places where a lot of water is often wasted. While individuals have to play their role in water conservation, we ensure that you don’t need to skimp on your shower time by implementing water conservation friendly flushes. These flushes use a lesser amount of water, while doing a better job than other flushes.
Even though we have put in all these measures to conserve water, we realise that a major worry for residents is that of running out of water. To ensure your peace of mind, we have put in several borewells so there is always plenty of water available.
We at AARNA, are committed to sustainable architecture and water conservation, and hence, spent a considerable amount of time and resources to come up with solutions that help in conserving water. These solutions are now being implemented in every single one of our properties. If you want to know more about how we have implemented these, please do visit any of our locations.
