Project Description

 

The program has attempted to explore the issues of ground water in a 35 sq. Km area around their corporate head-quarters in Bengaluru – an area that is completely dependent on ground water for its needs and which is largely unregulated. This is representative of many rapidly developing urban and peri-urban cities in India; in Bengaluru itself around 40% of its water needs is met by ground water. The approach was to use a science based approach to understand the hydrogeology of the area and engage communities through various platforms (citizen science, advocacy, facilitation of interventions). The program involved extensive borewell monitoring, and detailed studies in selected clusters. The idea was to evolve a decentralized model of ground water management. The program has established the feasibility of shallow aquifer as a source of water in consonance with a planned echarge cycle and its linkages with how we treat surface water systems like rivers, lakes, wetlands and wells as part of a connected hydrogeological system.
Karnataka State Water Network (KSWN) Launched in 2014, the Karnataka State Water Network (KSWN) convened by Wipro in partnership with the CIIKarnataka, serves as a multi-stakeholder platform to address water challenges in identified geographical clusters of Bengaluru. The network has conducted 10 curated programs and four annual conferences till date. This forum has served a useful space in getting industry, government and citizens together to effect some key interventions – rejuvenation of lakes in industrial areas and initial work on setting up a common industry effluent treatment plant among others.
