The underlying hard rock of the Khor and Suwakheda areas in the Neemuch district of Madhya Pradesh, along with its soil conditions, meant 90 per cent of the area’s rainwater was lost. With only 10 per cent infiltrating the sedimentary terrain, this posed a unique challenge to UltraTech’s water conservation efforts at Vikram Cement Works, an integrated unit of UltraTech located in Khor, Neemuch. To enable water harvesting, UltraTech modified its mine planning and operations to maximise extraction of mineral from lower benches. This helped in accumulation of rainwater in the lower benches. As part of this initiative, 85 lakh cubic metres of water has been harvested in the mine area at Vikram Cement Works in FY20 alone.Read More
