In order for Pune, India to harness the full potential of its watershed it must see the Mula Mutha as one unified system of a river and its nallahs. Nallahs are inherently decentralized low ground and have great potential to hold water. A water holding system cannot be realized without first taking an in-depth look at the pollution issues that surround the cities waterways.
Our proposal is three-pronged. The first and most important system is the water holding network of Nallahs and interconnected infrastructures. The second and third system work in parallel. One system implements a web of physical waste collection and harvesting points that incentivizes communities to collaborate and clean up their neighborhood. The other system filters and treats polluted nallah water before its eventual release into the Mula Mutha.
