Team SILVERON, on the basis of their experimentation, experience and analysis conclude that for rain water harvesting, ‘diameter has very little meaning and it is the depth which is more important’.
In simple terms, since the strata keeps changing as we drill down the earth, we are likely to encounter some soil strata which absorb more water, some which absorb less and some which absorb none.
The idea of only digging a rain water collection pond for recharge purpose is partly successful since the base of the freshly dug pond will permit percolation of rain water but in due course of time it will become hard and non permeable. The diameter of the pond will increase the water holding volume of the pond but will also at the same time increase surface area from where water will evaporate. The depth of this pond may be say 5 to 10 ft so at the edges of the pond we get exposed ground strata of only 5 to 10 ft. and this is too less.
On the basis of these observations, SILVERON excavates and develops ponds in the low lying area and simultaneously constructs recharge shafts in appropriate numbers to allow rain water to flow into the pond during rains and find passage to percolate into the ground and enrich the ground water.
This makes recharge through pond a 100% successful project and SILVERON a premier solution provider for rain water harvesting.
