Rainwater harvesting – A traditionally unique technique to preserve water and its usefulness
Dr. Somnath Roy
Water is supposed to be a perpetual, free, natural, never-ending source. The need for treated water supply is ever increasing due to unplanned population growth. Therefore, the implementation of various water conservation techniques at the individual, institutional, and community levels is essential to balance the demand. Sustainable use of potable water could balance supply and demand. Rainwater harvesting (RWH) is traditionally the most unique and simple ecological technique that can be used for both potable and domestic water purposes in residential and commercial buildings. This could naturally reduce treated water pollution and improve green living. Rainwater harvesting (RWH) systems can solve the problem of water scarcity in the non-monsoon season by storing a large amount of water per year. This technology can improve water supply for construction and gardening and also helps in artificial recharge of groundwater, thus enriching both surface and groundwater resources. The RWH system provides a tremendous amount of water and a large amount of energy savings through reduced water consumption. Moreover, considering the budget for installation and maintenance costs, the system is very effective and economical in both respects.
