Bangalore (in)famously became known for “running out of water” - alarmist headline that nevertheless brought attention to the reality of a rapidly unsustainable sourcing and usage of water by the city. Groundwater recharge from Bangalore’s considerable rain endowment is a major solution to this but needs to be done by everyone, at scale.
The Rainwater Club/Biome kicked off a campaign with the well digger community involved as well - it not only addresses the huge issue of water security, but also of urban flooding, with the bonus of reviving a major traditional livelihoods method.
This has gotten major press too - but adoption is still fairly slow compared to what’s needed. How does this become the one thing all office complexes, residential communities, govt departments and ordinary citizens throw their weight behind? It’s a mere 30-40k investment per well, and solves so much for all of us.
Ideas? We’re ready to help pitch in where needed.
