We have delineated the catchment of the major sources of water for the Municipality. We are in the process of collecting data on the land use pattern there. This would enable us to link the water flows in the source to possibilities of improvements in land use practices, which could form the basis of a Payment for Ecosystem Services Model.
Our rain gauge at Ralliah dam is working well and we have collected daily rainfal data for the monsoon of 2014. We are sharing the data and analysis in a separate post.
