In S. Raghuttahalli village in Chikkaballapur eight farm ponds, thirteen percolation ponds, two nala bunds and two check dams were constructed and desilting of existing tanks to an extent of 11,375 cu m was carried out over a period of five years. During 2015-16, rainfall of 1163 mm was received which was 97% excess over normal. As a result, 312.85 lakh litres of rainwater was harvested in the water storage structures.
