|2 old friends - designing a rainwater filter|
The school has close to 4000sqm of rooftop with a potential to harvest upto 3 million litres of water annually. Keeping this in mind a 2 lakh liter rainwater storage tank has been created. The overflow from the tank is let into a dried up borewell for ground water recharge. A large silt trap and filter has also been designed, and implementation is currently underway.

Mr Venkatesh Reddy (a classmate of Mr VV Reddy from their school days) is ensuring that the implementation gets done.
Both these ex-students (Mr Venkataswamy and Mr Venkatesh) are taking a lot of pride in their work and contributing diligently to their alma mater. They also reminisce the days when just alongside their school the Chandapura kere would be close to overflowing for most parts of the year. Their next plan is to ensure ground water recharge
