Rainwater harvesting pits must for houses : KTR

Administration Minister K. Tarakarama Rao on Saturday announced that rainwater harvesting pits would be compulsory for all the new houses being constructed in areas of 300 square metres.

Addressing ‘Mana Nagaram’ programme at Vishwanath Garden in Miyapur, the minister said not having rainwater harvesting pits would attract heavy fine on the house owners and also on the concerned GHMC officials.

He stressed the need for having more number of pits to harvest rainwater so as to increase the groundwater levels. He said any negligence now could lead to huge shortage of drinking water in future.
