#VICTORYTALES : SECOND PRIZE (SHARED) WINNER OF THE SATYAMEV JAYATE WATER CUP 2018
Guess what, not only did the villagers of SindKhed village (T. Motala) bag kudos, they also discovered hidden treasure left behind by their ancestors!
While the watershed management work was being carried out, one of them found a hole layered with stones close to their ancestral well. It turned out to be an old soak pit near the well. “Our ancestors only know how they did it. We are learning all this in a new way, through the medium of Paani Foundation. Preventing soil erosion and harvesting water, these are all things that we are doing now, but they did this 150 years back. Somewhere along we forgot about it, but now because of the competition people have once again realised the benefits of harvesting water,” said Savita Dandge, a resident of this village.
Inspite of the little rainfall they have received this year, their wells haven’t run dry, all thanks to the soak pits that they dug out this year.
We are excited to announce that @hearstcastleshm Neptune Pool has been repaired and refilling has started.
The renovations eliminate the leaks that were wasting upwards of 5,000 gallons of water every day and preserve the beauty of the historic pool.

In the name of #Waterconservation I have been very interested in how take advantage of #recyclewater since #LosAngeles doesn’t have a big water supply. It is still a mystery to me why we keep flushing fresh drinkable water down the toilet but I’ll leave that for another time 🤔🤷🏽♀️. This week, I went to visit the “Griffith Park South Water Recycling Project” and let me tell you it’s an incredible engineering site. Scheduled to be completed by early 2019, it will increase the available supply of recycle water by 129 million. That’s a lot of water 💦!! Enough to offset the drinking water needs of 1,110 household🏘. So cool! It will help supply the irrigation needs of the nursery, golf course, and other areas of #griffithpark . You can see the tank from the parking lot by the merry-go-round on top of the hill. •
My city collects real estate storm water fees. If you use things like rain collecting buckets, gravel, you'll get a fee discount. It'll take math skills, getting stuff to save on local fees. Save on any fees where ever you can. #debtfreecommunity#daveramsey

A peak into the humble adobe we’ve lived in for the last little parcel of time. Today, I kissed behind Boulder, the beautiful people I’ve gotten to know, the bounty of vegetables, and the bus.
Living in the bus taught me two things. First, any minor activity (e.g cooking) leads to a hurricane of a mess. No need for all the extra material items, just adds more to clean.
Second, with no running water, the tap no longer comes from outer space and disappears to nowhere. When you have to fetch your water from the well, you’re motivated to keep water use to an absolute minimum. And you definitely don’t want to defecate in your perfectly good drinking water.. shitty to hear, but true! Pun intended 😛
Super grateful for @madelinenorris always being ready and excited to jump into the next eccentric journey ❤️ #PeaceOutBoulder#tinyhome#waterconservation#simpliving
