An underground aquifer runs through the property of the station in Kathmandu-Tilganga. Shanti dug a well in order to pump this groundwater.
From a depth of 20 metres, it is pumped to the surfaced and purified with active charcoal and organic bacteria before it springs from the large fountain in the station courtyard. As it falls into the successive fountain basins, it is oxygenated and is also further disinfected through the sun's radiation.
The fountain pumps for than 6,000 litres each day, which is used only for drinking water and to wash cooking utensils. Reservoirs on the rooftop store rainwater for the toilets, showers and cleaning.
The fountain always operates when electricity is available, usually in the mornings and evenings. The photovoltaic system is unable to provide enough electricity for fountain operation – its capacity is sufficient to service only the most basic power needs.
