A dam of 10 feet in height is built to collect the surface runoff water on one side, which is designed to recharge the groundwater by reinterpreting the topography of the landforms. On the other side, a fun waterfall is designed for the user. The water overflow slit is protruding so that one can enjoy the waterfall standing beneath it.
