Sambalpur Watershed Project
As part of its CSR initiatives, Epsilon took up the responsibility to set up a watershed project to improve irrigation, forest cover, drainage and afforestation in Sambalpur District in the interiors of Odisha. AVH has budgeted Rs 15 lakh for a period of one year over an area of about 100 hectares for this activity.

Government’s development schemes had not reached the villages of this area adequately as the area is surrounded by hills and forests. Development of immediate irrigation facilities was the desperate need of the farmers, especially of the area around our plant.

Epsilon deployed a team of experts to carry out extensive survey of the region to study the terrain and drainage of the area. A systematic plan was worked out to set up the watershed project, taking villagers along by creating awareness amongst them. As part of execution plan, water harvesting structures, green cover improvement and natural resource management were identified and the locals are being trained by our Project Implementing Unit.
