Old mines reservoir four nos. for collection of rain water and stored water is being used for gravel screening process and washing purpose. Presently stored water quantity is 12.14 lakh m3, this collected rain water is used throughout the year. Each rainwater drop is conserved in the plant by an innovative garland canal. The collected water is diverted into reservoir situated in Mines and crushing units. Four Rain Water harvesting bodies covering nearly 28.0 hectares have been developed in Mines area. Similarly, at Group’s Cochin Blue Metals plant in Kottayam, the company has developed two ponds for rain water harvesting and the quantity of rain water being collected near the plants.
The noise pollution from turbine, conveyor, fans centrifugal pumps electric motors etc is kept least with proper design below the permissible limit of 85 dB at 1 mt away from the source.
