Rawalpindi: In order to initially serve the needs of three mosques, the Rawalpindi Development Authority (RDA) built underground water tanks as part of a rainwater collection trial project.
The following three mosques: Jamia Masjid-e-Bilal in Khayaban -E-Sir Syed, Sarajiya Masjid in Syedpur Housing Scheme, and Jamia Masjid Ghausia in Bangash Colony would all benefit from the rainwater harvesting project.
The Rainwater Harvesting Project will also be expanded by the RDA to accommodate the demands of additional mosques, parks, public restrooms, and government buildings. Sites have also been chosen and work has begun for this reason.
As part of the mosque rainwater harvesting project, rainwater is collected in a sizable storage tank, from which spent water is transferred to another storage tank for use in further irrigation of parks and green spaces.
According to officials, three significant water harvesting projects for the city will be connected to the rooftops of significant public buildings in the upcoming days.
The pilot initiative, started by the RDA with financial assistance from the UNDP, has been deemed a success.
It was said by RDA officials that the water used for ablution in mosques will now be usable rather than being wasted.
Furthermore, the rainwater harvesting system will now be a viable source of clean water for the use of citizens.
