Building a water-body

IW Club Bombay North, District 314 India built a water-body in Village Igatpuri 


IW Club Bombay North built a water-body in Village Igatpuri (Maharashtra) to help villagers to become self-reliant for their water needs as there is a scarcity of water in that region.

An artificial lake was built for rain-water harvesting. The idea was to allow villagers to use this lake to breed fish that could be consumed or sold.

IWC Bombay North personally supervised the project. They involved villagers and children to plant mango and custard apple trees along the lake.

They plan to build a pipeline from this lake, giving the village access to a 24-hour  water supply.
