Jamia Millia Islamia (JMI) has prepared a Draft Master Plan Report on ‘Feasibility and Design of Rainwater Harvesting Master Plan of Municipal Corporation of Gurgaon (MCG) Area’.

The report, prepared by Prof. Gauhar Mehmood and Sadiqa Abbas - faculty members of Department of Civil Engineering, has been submitted to the Commissioner of Municipal Corporation of Gurgaon, (MCG) Haryana.

The proposal divides MCG area into 11 Zones, which include various sectors of Gurgaon. The report has considered relevant parameters such as rainfall, groundwater condition and behaviour, geology of the area, hydro-geo-environmental conditions and hydro-geological conditions.

The total watershed area proposed for the Master Plan is 357.24 sq. km. or 88,250 acres of land while the average specific yield of the area is 21% and average water level fluctuation is 1.8 m.

In order to make the rainwater harvesting system effective, 30% of the total area has been allocated for Roof Top, 30% for Roads and 40% for Greens. There is a provision of 265 Injection wells in the 11 Zones.

Besides other advance techniques and methodology in the proposal, it has also been recommended that the structures should be located in depression areas in absence of storm water drains in order to avoid contamination especially on the roadsides and the structures should be closed from top to avoid any oil spillage.
