World Nature Conservation Day is an annual event held on July 28. This day stresses the need for preserving a healthy environment and natural resources to maintain a stable and healthy society. Over the years, rapid urbanization has caused great harm to the environment. The day underlines the need for preserving the environment for future generations.
Environment-friendly construction presents a big solution to this unsustainable harm to the environment. One development that scored high on the sustainability factor is Hiranandani Parks, Oragadam. Designed, built, and operated in an environmentally friendly and resource-efficient manner, the range of sustainability features at Hiranandani Parks helps to conserve nature for generations to come.
Here are some features at the 360-acre Hiranandani Parks that helps to conserve nature
A state-of-the-art water treatment plant
Through a series of stormwater drains that run throughout the township, rainwater is collected and stored within the township. The water is then treated at the modern water treatment plant located within the township. An average family of 5 uses around 750 – 1000 lts per day. The cutting-edge water treatment plant has a capacity of 2.34 MLD (Millions Of Liters Per Day), which covers the water needs of all the residents within the township.
The modern sewage treatment plant
Scoring high on self-sustainability, waste reduction, and fertilizer production, the sophisticated sewage treatment plant at Hiranandani Parks, treats wastewater and reuses it for toilet flushing and other domestic uses such as watering the plants and cleaning the floors.
Through the treatment of wastewater, the amount of waste that is released into the environment is considerably reduced, thereby improving the environment’s health. This, in turn, reduces the health risk associated with environmental pollution and the nearby water bodies remain uncontaminated.
The sludge that is collected during the treatment process contains a large amount of biodegradable material. It is treated using the sludge-drying lagoon process and the yield is used as a natural biodegradable fertilizer in the themed gardens.
Large open green spaces
Over 60% of the 360-acre township consists of large open green spaces. It includes more than 1000 trees, 7 themed gardens, and more greens across Hiranandani Parks. From a religious-themed garden that has all the 23 Nakshatra trees and plants, butterfly gardens that have the perfect environment for butterflies to flutter to spice, and herb gardens that spread the scent of goodness, the gardens conserve nature for the young generations.
