In Chennai, A Community Harvests 25,000 Litres Of Rain Water In An Hour

The Koda family, who live in Sabari Terrace, an apartment complex located along Chennai's IT corridor, use only rain water for three months a year; there is no piped water supply in this area. When the parched city received its first showers on Saturday, the 56 families who live here collected thirty thousand litres in a little over an hour by harvesting every drop of rain from their 25,000 square foot terrace.
