“This was implemented as part of our CSR activities of 2016-17 for Teppadabeguru mini water shed benefiting 35 villages. These projects will help in reviving dried natural water resources and the natural habitat of the region”, he said. The event Lokarpana (dedication to people) was held at Arashinakunte near Bengaluru. Mr. V.M. Chamola, HAL’s Director (HR), other village leaders and officials were present on the occasion.

The rejuvenation work at Teppadabeguru included planting of saplings (5000), recharging of wells (79) and borewells (9), creation of water pools (15) and boulder checks (79). In all, in the past three years, HAL planted 20,000 saplings, built 50 water pools, recharged 36 borewells and 281 wells besides carrying-out boulder-checks (281) in the region that covers Tavarekere, Thyamagondlu, Mondigere, Teppadabeguru mini-watersheds.

Kumudvathi is a tributary to river Arkavathi and originates from Shivagange hills in Nelamangala taluk of Bangalore rural district. Both Arkavathi and Kumudvathi flow into Tippagondanhalli reservoir which was serving 30‐40% water requirements of Bangalore three decades ago. At present there is scanty inflow from the river Kumudvathi. The scanty inflow is due to degradation of natural vegetation, soil erosion, and over-exploitation of ground water. The catchment area covers about 460 sq km, 278 villages and is classified into 18 mini-watersheds for rejuvenation work.

HAL as part of its CSR has been sponsoring rejuvenation work of Mini Watersheds through International Association of Human Values (IAHV). Rejuvenation helps in revival of defunct borewells and open wells, protect drinking water sources, leads to agro-horticulture developments, increases natural vegetation leading to eco-hydrological conservation.
