From this year 2020 with this project of saving rainwater in a farm pond as big as 90' x 50' x 20' appox which is 90,000 cubic ft holds around 2.5 lakh liters of rain water. The walls and the flooring of the pond is left naturally to perculate the water into the ground hoping to get the surrounding underground water streams to recharge.
