Rainwater Harvesting at Wankede Stadium and Andheri Sports Complex
The Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) is eyeing rainwater harvesting as a permanent solution to its water problems at Wankhede Stadium. The proposal is being touted as a way for the MCA to cut costs at the stadium which pays close to Rs 1.7 lakh a year for water tankers.  The MCA has already received a proposal for a rainwater harvesting system that is likely to cost about Rs 8 lakh.
 
The Anderi Sports Complex (ASC), which switched to rainwater harvesting seven years ago, today has a carpet green surface. The man who set up their system, Shrikant Godbole, an assistant engineer with the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation and resident engineer at ASC, says ‘‘From a catchment of 30,000 litres initially, today the Andheri Sports Complex has close to three lakh litres.’’
