The urban development of Mysore has a projected area of 150 Sq. Km. Mysore
receives an average rainfall of 750mm per annum and has 170 rainy days.
An estimated total rainfall of 135x109 litres per year has been calculated
where 10% is runoff and 10% is evaporation and infiltration losses. An
estimated 295 litres per capita per day can be supplied in Mysore, if
all the rainwater is used for Mysore domestic requirement.
Further, Environmental Sound Technologies [ESTs] encompass technologies
that have the potential for significantly improved environmental performances
relative to other technologies (www.unep.or.jp/estdis/maestro/setup2.html).
As a case study, the ineffective use of ESTs in Mysore urban development
is reported (www.vishalcomputech.faithweb.com/mlan).
Based on ESTs database and best practices else where, a home page of PSF.
(www.psf.4t.com) on RWH as an EST for urban
development is proposed for local utilization at domestic, industries,
and service sector.
