Description

Arghyam (www.arghyam.org) is helping the documentation and dissemination of the Sachetana programme of the government of Karnataka which seeks to tackle excess fluoride in groundwater. This water has 1.5 ppm and more fluoride and is the only source of drinking water. Sachetana seeks to provide rooftop rainwater as fluoride free water to drink. Under the Sachetana programme of the government of Karnataka the NGO BIRD-K implements rooftop rainwater harvesting. This family has a 7000 litre tank and collects rain. A small plastic hand pump draws the water from the sump tank in the kitchen itself. The tanks are invariably underground though a few may be over the ground tanks.
