The earthen dam at Aasrewali created a small sized reservoir that initially provided water for fields lying downstream. The irrigation pipes are, however, now buried under silt and the reservoir now serves as a watering-hole for the village cattle and the wildlife.
A second, much larger reservoir has been created more recently in the hills deep in the scrub forest across the seasonal rivulet that flows past the Aasrewali village. This reservoir provides water to the fields through pipes that are as yet functional and not rendered inoperative by siltation. The utilization of water does, however, lead to the reservoir runing dry in summers.
The Aasrewali reservoirs have proved a boon for the wildlife during the dry summer season and are frequented by Barking deers, Neelgai, Goral, Langurs, Jackals, Sambars and the lurking leopards.
