RWH training session on 24th June 2016 organized by NVIRON

Class room sessions
BIOME was invited as a trainer for a RWH training session organized by NVIRON (NVIRON Training Centre is one of the Asia’s emerging knowledge platforms on water and environment management. ) on 24th June 2016. The participants (all engineers) were from varied industries – from an amusement park, sugar factories in Bagalkot, 2 wheeler manufacturers, Andhra Pradesh Electricity board, KUWSDB and others. 
The training included sessions on the hows and whys of rainwater harvesting. It was interesting to understand the water management practices at each of these industries. 

  1. The sugar industries work only for 4-5 months of the year in the dry months and are closed in the monsoon months for maintenance and that is when they receive most of their rain. How does one store rainwater over long periods of time ? 
  2.  The 2 wheeler manufacturing industry manages only with harvested rainwater as well as treated waste water. However there were issues with the quality of harvested rainwater.

The participants interest and experience with RWH ensured that all sessions stayed interactive. This led to good discussions as well as good learning for both the trainers and the trainees.

The afternoon session was a trip to the RWH Theme park (a good resource center for practical demonstrations of RWH) in Jayanagar, Bangalore.

Many thanks to NVIRON for the opportunity
