Groundwater is a precious resource, both for yield and quality. This paper demonstrates the imaginative, progressive and innovative approaches of simulated renovations giving substantial advantages to the general public. Utilising groundwater to stimulate wells, in conjunction with a rainwater conservation framework, is proposed in this review. The unique plan and cost correlations as well as groundwater quality change are examined for the procedures of the tempest water seepage framework with and without reviving wells. The region chosen for study is Bhimrad, a new urban centre in Surat City in Gujarat State, India. Two rainwater structures are considered: (1) a traditional rainwater water drainage system excluding groundwater revive wells, and (2) a rainwater drainage system including groundwater revive wells. This paper shows that due to determination of the optimal diameter of revive wells, cost saving in the modified system is possible, along with improvement in groundwater contamination. The use of a modified rainwater drainage system would economically benefit the SMC (Surat Municipal Corporation) by conserving 25.43% of their reserve funds.
