Chennai: Chennai Metro Rail has adopted a mechanism that will help save about 2,000 litres of water per day.

The condensed water dripping from the air conditioners will be collected & used for various purposes, according to the officials of Chennai Metro Rail Limited (CMRL).

An official said,“For a start, this process has been tried in the administrative building of CMRL in Koyambedu. Soon, we plan to extend it to the stations along the underground stretch from Thirumangalam to Nehru Park.”
