Their prime focus is on water and energy conservation and other environment friendly applications, and in implementing a comprehensive rain water capture and storage at field level using a proven technology.

FLRWHS is an environment friendly organization which has pioneered the concept of Roof Top Rain Water Harvesting, for the very first time in India, by way of eliminating sedimentation Tank and closed Valve filters replacing the system with uniquely Patented operation which segregates sediments, dirt particles and clean water individually. . This technique avoids periodic maintenance and the use of consumables.Totally indigenous technology with respect to open ended dual intensity, self-cleaning, auto flush out, wall mounted filters operates on gravity, based on the working principle of cohesion and centrifugal force.

In the areas of installation of this RWH system supply of tanker water has reduced by more than 70 percent.

The innovation provides twin benefits. It aids water recharge in dry and arid regions by addressing water requirements of a large section of society and also helps in avoiding new bore wells, need for tanker water and energy for water extraction. These help in obtaining a net positive carbon footprint and local community adaptation to water stress. The scalability of the innovation and its co-benefits has wider applicability in the context of climate change.

The qualitative aspect of ground water has changed to a certain extent by way of contamination of fluorides and heavy metals making it unfit for both human, livestock and agricultural operations. With scientific and modern rainwater harvesting technology envisaged, the efficient recharging of ground water has improved the water situation both in quantity and quality terms. With Installation of `Rainy’ filters every year able to Conserve Millions of Litres of water. This has helped to conserve precious groundwater source and also pumping cost to draw the water from distance places and also tanker water.
