Building Permits: Curepipe Promotes the Collection of Rainwater

"Any new application for a building permit shall contain provisions for the installation of a system for collecting rainwater," says Kritanand Beeharry, president of the Public Health Committee of the Municipality of Curepipe. This measure is in force since the beginning of this month.

"We are the first municipality to adopt this measure," says Kritanand Beeharry. This measure, he explains, is in line with the Maurice Ile Durable concept. Each building (commercial building, school, etc.) which sits on a plot of over 4.5 perches in Curepipe and will arrange necessary for rain water harvesting.

Files submitted before March 2013, however, are not affected by this decision. The objective of this measure is to reduce the use of water distributed by the Central Water Authority (CWA) and encourage Curepipiens to use rainwater efficiently.

"Curepipe is in an area that is abundantly watered. But the majority of this resource can be found in our drains and in case of rain, it causes accumulations. In order to reduce the risk of flooding, we wanted to include this clause in the application for a building permit to encourage Curepipiens to follow suit, "says Kritanand Beeharry. And state: "The existing buildings are not required to do so, but should follow this path. "This project is welcomed by opposition members will benefit from an awareness campaign in schools in Curepipe. A model system for the collection of water will be installed soon near the town of Curepipe.
