It had ventured out from Jamwa Ramgarh dam, which used to have around 100 of its species at one time. Since 2006, however, the dam is dry, leaving little fish or other prey for the aquatic reptiles.

Hi,

We are constructing a new house in Jaipur. We are interested in getting water harvesting done. However, we don't have expertise to do so. Moreover, few people have told us that the construction of the water storage tank would not be possible due to rocky terrain.

Can somebody help me on this? Or can somebody put me in touch with an expert in Jaipur?

Thanks in advance!
