Bhubaneswar Jul 09: Under the “catch rain programme”, Odisha has achieved a milestone of setting up more than 10,000 rainwater harvesting structures (RWHS).
These rainwater harvesting structures were established to aid water conservation and groundwater recharge ahead of the onset of the southwest monsoon.
Hailing the ‘brilliant effort’ of the Odisha government, Union Jal Shakti Minister Gajendra Singh Shekhawat tweeted, “10,000 Rainwater harvesting structures in 75 days across 114 local bodies is a commendable feat.
This campaign run under Mukhya Mantri Karma Tatapara Abhiyan ( MUKTA) will help #CatchTheRain at a mammoth scale across the state, the Union Minister said.
