what is Rainwater harvesting

Rainwater harvesting is a process of collecting rainwater from various man-made hard surfaces like rooftops. This water is then stored and reused for several other purposes like irrigation, livestock or watering gardens.When treated using different purification methods, it can also be used as drinking water.Rainwater systems come in all shapes and sizes and most systems are comprised of the same basic components

Why should we do rain water harvesting

With monsoon rainfall decreasing every year, we are bound to face serious water crisis that can exhaust all the quintessential natural resources that we are gifted with and lessen the chances of having a healthy ecosystem for our future generations.

Every year, different regions in India are hit by drought,and people struggle to get water for basic needs like drinking and cooking. Rather than solely relying on government for passing laws for water conservation, we as individuals can make a big difference by taking measures for rainwater harvesting.

Advantages of rainwater harvesting


  1. Augments ground water table when used to recharge ground water.
  2. Diminishes rapid decline of groundwater as its dependency decreases when water from rainwater harvesting is used for miscellaneous purposes.
  3. Reduces soil erosion due to water runoff during monsoon as water is collected, and thereby the intensity of water flow is reduced right from the time it touches the ground.
  4. Helps in inculcating a water conservative mind since people gain more knowledge on how they can source water and utilize it efficiently based on their nature of usage.
