Rainwater harvesting is the accumulating and storing of rainwater for reuse before it reaches the aquifer. It can be used to provide drinking water, water for livestock, water for irrigation, as well as other typical uses. Rainwater collected from the roofs of houses and local institutions can make an important contribution to the availability of drinking water. Rainwater harvesting systems can be simple to construct from inexpensive local materials, and are potentially successful in most habitable locations.
Rainwater harvesting can ensure an independent water supply during water restrictions. Rainwater harvesting systems are simple to install and operate. Running costs are negligible, and they provide water at the point of consumption. Rainwater harvesting in urban communities has been made possible by various companies. Their tanks provide an attractive yet effective solution to rainwater catchment.
