Enjoy your WALK on a footpath which also harvests precious RAINWATER!

Can our footpaths be porous?
Harvest rainwater through your walk paths.

In Bangalore, a kilometer of walk path with porous pavements has a potential to harvest 30 lakh liter of rainwater per year. With moderate percolation efficiency of 75%, around 15 families of Bangalore can depend entirely on recharged ground water all through the year.
Can we bring in this change?
Porous foot paths are cheaper to build and easy to maintain compared to conventional foot paths.
