I am a resident of Bangalore living in an apartment complex for almost a decade now. Residents of my apartment complex have been suffering with faulty/ ill maintained STP for several years. Several complaints to builder/welfare association have fallen on deaf ears. Black, untreated water often infested with worms is a regular scene for us. Where do residents like us lodge a formal complaint? Is it with the pollution control board or with local sewage authorities?

Our apartment complex in Bengaluru has sloping roof which does not allow us to have a roof top collection of rainwater. All that water comes down and flows on the roads of the complex to the lowest point in our complex before it goes out. Can this water which has traversed the complex on ground level be used to recharge the borewell directly using just layers of differently sized gravel and sand or more sophisticated filtering will be required to remove cleaning chemicals and fertilisers (used in gardens) before it can recharge the borewell ?
