Siruthuli’s Mission – Rejuvenate Coimbatore!
Siruthuli, an NGO operating in Coimbatore has worked extensively to revive water bodies around the city of Coimbatore. On the occasion of World Water Day, let us take a glimpse at their journey of rejuvenating water bodies. Sirthuli has cleaned and desilted 13 out of 24 system tanks of Coimbatore, developed three percolation ponds, constructed more than 650 rainwater harvesting facilities and three check dams, and desilted 19 ponds. They managed to increase water storage capacity to 7 million cubic meters and cleaned more than 30 channels in the Noyyal River ecosystem. “What started as a quest to restore Coimbatore’s fast depleting water tables is now an ever-growing, much embraced and well-knit community of civic conscious citizens, green at heart. Change seekers who became the change. Who stops at nothing to ensure the world is a better place for the upcoming generations – an organisation, now a public movement!”, Sirthuli mentioned in its Facebook post.
