Story

Coimbatore is one of India's fastest growing economies and is also known for a unique habitat of a kind. From the western ghats forests bordering its outer limits to a series of lakes and ponds, the Coimbatore region is an ecological wonder. The elephants and other wildlife, the humans and the industries run by humans all are dependent on water in the region. Man-animal conflict, degrading water quality, contaminated lakes, polluted rivers and rise in water-related diseases are all a major concern in the region. The lack of effective, science-based, modern-day water management is the need of the hour in the region.

Kinathukadavu is a suburb of Coimbatore located on the Pollachi highway. This zone is home to several abandoned and neglected water bodies. E.F.I approached the District Rural Development Agency and has availed permission to adopt and restore 7 ponds in the region. We are crowdfunding for the restoration of 1 pond in the region. A scientific restoration which will focus on the following:

1. Removal of dumped trash and construction debris from these water bodies

2. Removal of invasive weeds

3. To structurally deepen the water body across the contour based on aquifer levels. This will help increase water storage levels.

4. Strengthen the earthen mud-walls to ensure better water retention

5. Berry, Fruit, Nectar bearing plantation along with native trees to support dependent lifeforms

6. An extended community outreach to connect people and the water body for futuristic conservation.

These are the expected outcomes for the localized set up, upon completion of the pond in the region.1. Improved ground water penetration

2. Localized temperature regulation

3. Curb water-borne diseases

4. Recharge for a water positive index
