Saving and harvesting the rain water is need of the hour. In Many cities the ground water level is depleting. Sensible utilization and harvesting the rain water is one of the only solutions we have right now. In a Rainwater harvesting system, rainwater is collected from an impervious surface such as the roof of a building and then after passing through filters, water is made in use either by storing in storage tanks or by recharging the ground water level.
WHY SHOULD WE HARVEST RAIN?
Rainwater harvesting is becoming popular once again for two reasons: its superior water quality and a desire to reduce the use and dependence on municipally treated water for all of our daily uses. Rainwater has long been valued for its purity and softness. It is free from salts, minerals, and other natural and man-made contaminants. In addition, rainwater harvesting is valued as a water conservation tool since it allows you to use rainwater instead of municipally treated water. This, in turn, reduces the amount of water a municipality has to treat and deliver to their service area.
- Rainwater is essentially FREE; once the capital cost of the collection system infrastructure is paid for, you will harvest free water.
It is socially acceptable and environmentally responsible since it promotes self-sufficiency and helps conserve water.
- It reduces your municipal water consumption and thus your water bill.
- It can be used as a main source of water or as a back-up source to wells and municipal water. It can also be very helpful in times of emergencies.
- It provides you with total control over your water supply (ideal for cities with water restrictions).
- Rainwater harvesting systems can be easily retrofitted to an existing structure or built during new home construction. They are very flexible and modular in nature, allowing expansion, reconfiguration, or relocation.
- Rainwater is the best water source for landscape irrigation due to the lack of chlorine and other treatment chemicals.
- Rainwater harvesting can reduce the frequency and intensity of flooding around your house or property.
- Since the use of the harvested water is located close to the collection source, this reduces the energy use required to move water around our cities.
- Rainwater harvesting can reduce stormwater pollution, lessening its impact on our local watersheds.
