Rain water harvesting is an accumulation and deposition of rain water for reuse before it reaches the aquifer. The main uses include water for gardening, water for livestock and water for irrigation etc.[1] Presently this water is used for gardening in SET JU is been pumped from bore well. Rain water harvesting unit has been designed for SET JU (Main building, hostel and canteen). The unit consists of 3 sand beds for filtering the collected rain water from each individual building. The water is then redirected to the designed underground water storage tank. The water collected in the water tank can be used efficiently for multiple purpose. The overflow water, if any may be diverted for the ground water recharge by using efficient method like recharge trench with bore. The overall cost for the rain water harvesting unit for SET, JU is estimated. The rain water harvesting unit is cost effective compared to the cost involved in pumping ground water for multiple purpose. As large quantity of water is used for gardening. The rain water harvesting is a good alternative.
