Jain Global Campus, Rainwater Harvesting System, Water Demand
Over the years lakes and tanks dug out of rocks were used as rain water harvesting systems. With civilisation the structures were neglected and soon dried up and this lead to over exploitation of the available resources. Together with water pollution these have led to scarcity of fresh water in many parts of the world. In India maximum rainfall is experienced during monsoons. At this time rainwater can be captured and used during dry seasons to supplement that from BWSSB as well as for ground water recharge. India is among the countries of the world expected to face water stress by the year 2020 with Karnataka in particular being the second state with most exploited underground water. In this paper maximum water demand for Jain Global campus is estimated based on present and future population of the campus, standard consumption rates as well as the rate of consumption according to the monthly water bills for the campus. Water potential is computed based on the total catchment area of the Jain Global campus and rainfall pattern of Kanakapura area.
