Drive for rain water harvesting, greening J&K held at Reasi
REASI, JULY 11: A plantation drive, under Go Green J&K drive, was carried out here in Katra Range involving   Sarpanchs, Panchs, locals and Staff of Reasi Forest Division.
Under the drive undertaken by Reasi Forest Division around 100 saplings of different varieties including Chinar were planted by the participants.
In addition to this a dilapidated water harvesting structure was also repaired, cleaned and desilted by Forest staff and locals to harvest maximum monsoon rain water which was the long pending demand of the area.
DFO Reasi, Anil Kumar Atri told that this is a step towards achieving the goal set under Green J&K Mission and the directions of PM to conserve maximum rain water during this monsoon season. He exhorted upon all to contribute for greening of surroundings along with conserving every single drop of rain water which can percolate into earth and recharge the underground water table.   He also impressed that such volunteer drives will be continued in future in different panchayats of the area to educate the people about the importance of forests and rain water conservation.
