In the reporting year, Marico has created farm ponds and water catchment area to maintain the ground water table and for the benefit of the community. Farm Pond: In the current year, we executed the project of constructing 60 farm ponds in Karnataka in a triplicate arrangement. Through this initiative we were able to store about 35 crore litres of water in the FY 2017-18. In addition 30 farm ponds have been built which will enable further saving of water during the monsoon season. Dam-Desilting: In the current year, we undertook the work of de-silting the Yeldari Dam which is an earth fill dam on Purna River near Yeldari in Jintur taluka of Parbhani district in the state of Maharashtra, India. The objective of de-silting was to create capacity for storing rain water and avoid water shortage in future. Additional stored water will help in providing more water for domestic consumption and improve livelihood in the area.
Additional stored water capacity.
