Hyderabad is one of the 21 cities running out of groundwater in 2020. We need aggressive action and implementation now! There aren’t enough Rainwater Harvesting structures.
BlueHyderabad is a Social initiative by The Rainwater Project partnering with SAHE to improve ground water levels in the city block by block which also involve restoration of water bodies and water structures.
