RWH theme park is a centralized exhibit of different methods and systems involved in rainwater harvesting. They have varied displays on outdoor storm water harvesting systems and a scaled model exhibit to show their working concepts in detail. For instance, it covers rain garden, Injection well, percolation pits, recharge wells, a house model to explain the storm water down take, Collection, filtration and storage, gutter made of different materials and its details, filtration models, water conservation and distribution system, etc.,

Students had an interactive session with the BWSSB engineers, namely Er. Sunil, Er. Nikhilesh and Er. Abhishek, who explained/demonstrated the displays/setup to the students. A video documentary was played in the auditorium at the end of the session on the water supply systems of Bangalore, insisting on the need of water conservation and the stormwater management. Students are captivated to see and understand the concepts involved in storm water management.

Outcomes of the study visit:

The III Sem B.Arch. students were able to recognise the importance of storm water management with a thoughtful understanding on concepts, systems involved in it and need of water conservation. This visit will certainly enhance their knowledge and outlook pertaining to the subject. They will document the learnings from the site visit in the form of a report.

We would like to thank the management and team at REVA University for their support and constant encouragement towards our endeavours.
