Water and Environment Conservation

Water Schemes in Ratnagiri

Maharashtra is one of the largest droughts hit states in India. More than 25% of villages in Ratnagiri district of Maharashtra suffer from water shortages due to poor water management & lack of reservoirs making more than 50% of the land unfertile.

Looking at the perennial water scarcity in Maharashtra for the last 9 years, Finolex Pipes started working on water conservation projects since 2007. The company has spent over Rs. 1.2 Cr to implement 22 water schemes in Ratnagiri from 2008 till date. The villages benefitted include Kolambe, Golap, Phansop, Bhatye, and Pawas. The support extended includes the digging of new wells, reviving old wells, electric pumps, supplying water through tankers to the villages in the months of April & May, setting up water filtration units, Syntex tanks, etc.

 

Rainwater Harvesting

A rainwater harvesting facility has been set up at the Punyadham Ashram, Pune through which water is being collected & used for various domestic purposes. We are planning to do this at other institutes to use rainwater efficiently. Rainwater harvesting systems have also been set up in schools in Masar, Gujarat.

 

Tree Plantation

Ensuring to look after our vicinity and conserve our environment to maintain a clean & green India. FIL & MMF organize tree plantation drives around the schools of Panchgani, Mahableshwar, Ratnagiri in Maharashtra and Masar in Gujarat. Each year, 8000 plant saplings are sowed.

 

Beach Clean Up

In support of Swach Bharat Abhiyan, FIL & MMF organized “A Clean Up Drive” at Bhatye Beach, Ratnagiri. One Sunday of each month is utilized by volunteers from Finolex Industries, who gather for the beach cleaning activity. In addition to this dustbins & benches have been put up at this beach to sustain this mission.

 

Water Conservation Project in Maharastra

Making a remarkable impact in Solapur, Sangli, Pune, and Ratnagiri, FIL in an endeavour to reduce water scarcity, contributed towards the construction of CNB (Cement Nala Bands), desilting, creating reservoirs.

In 2017, the governor of Maharashtra approached us, to provide pipes to Wadgoan Anand village to bring water from the source to the destination. A bund has been evacuated to lay the pipeline which is 2km. This will service water requirements to 3000 nearby villages within the radius.

With our recent initiative, we are supporting 2 major water conservation projects, in Pune and Solapur district –

The first project is the desilting of Khadakwasala dam, a Public-Private Partnership (PPP) where Finolex has joined hands with the government and other corporates to sponsor 1 km each. This dam provides drinking water to a population of 45 lakhs and caters to the farming needs from Pune to Solapur (Baramati belt).

The other water conservation project is desilting of 4.5km of 2nd phase of Bendh Nala Rejuvenation work with the Madha Welfare foundation, NAAM foundation, and ZP Solapur at Solapur. This support will help resolve the water scarcity and shortages in 32 villages which is home to 22,000 individuals. This is the only project in Maharashtra where 32 villages came together for this noble cause.

Apart from this, the need for pure drinking water in schools has created a platform for MMF / FIL to provide water filters and RO Systems to schools.
