The cell would be set up in co-ordination with Rainstock, an organisation into rainwater harvesting and the Young Indians chapter of the CII (Confederation of Indian Industry) and will help in conserving and saving water.

The corporation has also planned awareness campaigns for water saving in the coming two months.

As per the government order, many houses have already established rain harvesting systems on their roofs. Many college campuses and other large institutions are also in the process of setting up their own water harvesting infrastructure.

In a first of its kind in Tamil Nadu, the Madurai Corporation has established a state-of-the-art “control room” at Anna Maaligai premises, which would monitor the movement of its water tankers, lorries transporting garbage and among others aided with GPRS facility. The total project costed around Rs 17.20 lakhs.
