The Forest Department has implemented specific measures to provide relief to animals from the heat and improving water availability for wildlife. Currently, they are installing a solar-powered water reservoir in Jaisamand Sanctuary, ensuring easy water access for the animals. Additionally, solar lights will be installed on administrative posts within the sanctuary.

Under the Panther Project, a solar pumping system will be set up at Jhumar Baori, Chanda Ji Ka Guda and Dheemda Phatak, estimated cost of Rs 10 lakh. Within the sanctuary, there are 15 water holes, about 12 of which have been consistently refilled by tankers during the summer season, necessitating 5 tankers of water daily.

As per forest authorities, a solar-powered pump of 5 horsepower will be installed at a cost of Rs 4.9 lakh on Jhumar Baori. Water will be distributed to three sections of the sanctuary through pipes. A solar battery system and 1 horsepower motor will be installed at a cost of Rs 1.90 lakh at the guard post of Van Rakshak Chauki Chandaji. The battery will have a capacity of 1.15 kilowatts. In Dheemda Bagh, at a cost of Rs 1.98 lakh, a 1.15 kilowatt solar system will be installed along with maintenance of the existing system. Additionally, at Dheemda Bagh Phatak, a solar system of 1.15 kilowatts and a one horsepower motor will be installed at a cost of Rs 1.16 lakh.
