Conserving water now for a better future
Himalaya India’s headquarters in Bengaluru is a sprawling 28-acre campus. Today, the water used in our gardens and for the upkeep of our campus comes from our rainwater harvesting system.
We have a well-structured network of eight water wells and 59 recharge pits. Rainwater from the ground and roofs flows through trenches and is collected in percolation pits. Currently, the percolation network has a combined storage capacity of 90,000 litres. Our entire water requirement is met by two wells with an average water generation capacity of 250,000 litres per day.
Working at 90% efficiency the percolation pits have also reduced the Total Dissolved Solid (TDS) in the groundwater, apart from raising the water table in and around our facility. The TDS stands at 1,500 parts per million, a significant decrease from around 5,000 ppm a few years ago.
