The water holding capacity of Storage cum Percolation Pond (SCP) of this RWH is 29,000KL. This project is the extension to the existing RWH Phase-I having SCP of 23000 KL.

In the recent years, rainwater harvesting has emerged as one of the most sustainable ways to conserve rainwater that otherwise gets wasted by getting drained off. Installation of rainwater harvesting structure helps in channelising precious rainwater to percolate down and replenish underground water table. As part of its commitment to environmental sustainability, Tata Steel has always given special emphasis to create such rain water harvesting structures in all its mining operations.
