About

Dheer Bhatnagar, Aditya Kumar, and Surbhi Kuwelker received Resolution Fellowships in 2010 to establish ‘Indian Monsoons,’ a rainwater harvesting pilot project on their university campus (National Law School, Bangalore). This project has saved more than 1.2 million litres of water to-date, in a city which is beginning to wake up to some of the worst water shortages in recent times. The sites employ a mixture of borewell recharge systems and infiltration wells, which help them identify the benefits of each system, and plan for expansion accordingly. Over the next year, and beginning after the completion of infrastructural upgrades on the campus, the project is set to expand and multiply its capacity.
