Gram Seva / Water Project at Bhurujwadi
Subject: BHUMI PUJAN OF WATER PROJECT ON 22/8/04
Sairam Brothers & Sisters,
The Bhumi Pujan for the water project at Burujwadi near Karjat is scheduled for Sunday 22/08/04. A detailed agenda for the bhumi pujan is given below.
The current water project at Burujwadi which the Youth of Mumbai have undertaken will benefit about 7 villages and a population of about 1300 people.Burujwadi is located off Karjat near Matheran.During summer time the villagers need to climb down the hill for about 45 minutes to fetch water.
The total cost of the project is estimated at Rs.20 lakhs. The salient features of the project are:-
1.The cluster of 7 villages is located atop a hill spreading over a surface area of approx.
1.5 kms overall. The distance between each village on the hill top is about 3-400 meters.
2.A water tank with a capacity of 63,000 litres has been planned to be constructed on the top of the hill. A jack well at the foot hill will be the source of water, which will be pumped upto the water tank.A water pump will be installed alongside the jack well.
3.HDPE / G.I pipelines for approx 5 kims of surface area will be laid for water to reach the various villages.
4.Water huts (popularly known as Tappas) at all the villages will be constructed to facilitate the villagers.
5.A bund (mini dam) on the river has also been suggested to conserve water levels.
One needs to physically see the location to feel the intensity of the project. Let us all seek the grace and help of Bhagwan in completing this project.
