Taking lessons from the historic development of the city of Udaipur, water and its catchment and storage in lakes are the in the focus of this proposal for IIM Udaipur campus. The need for water to sustain life on site is recognized and provided for. Check-dams are placed in strategic locations, based on the average annual rainfall and on the analysis of the natural water sheds of the contours, to hold a maximum amount of rainfall. The treatment and recycling of sewage has also been considered to make this a self-sufficient, water sustainable campus. Moreover the lakes benefit climatically in cooling the buildings.
