01.03 WATER PERCULATION

The purpose of developing a water management system is to reduce the runoff and discharge of rainwater out of Auroville and avoid the monsoon floods.To do so, two systems will be combined wherebytheexistinglocaldepressionsandcanyonsaretoconnect and form a superficial retention water network, while, in areas with high percolation levels, water will infiltrate into the soil and reach and refill the underground aquifers. Accordingly, in areas with low percolation water levels, the permeability of the soil must be improved and, if it is not feasible, as in the case of urban areas, other solutions will be taken.
