Abstract
Ancient method of damming river and transporting water to urban area has its own issues of eternal troubles of social and political. In order to conserve and meet our daily demand of water requirement, we need to think for alternative cost effective and relatively easier technological methods of conserving water. Rain water harvesting is one of the best methods fulfilling those requirements. To achieve this goal, the Green Building criteria has been implemented since the beginning of the design process until the detailing process on the end of the project. Water collecting and use frameworks have been utilized since antiquated circumstances and confirmation of rooftop catchment frameworks go back to early Roman circumstances Rain water harvesting is one of the best methods fulfilling those requirements. The technical aspects of this paper are rainwater harvesting collected from rooftop which is considered to be catchment areas from Institutes departmental building at SHREE L. R. TIWARI COLLEGE CAMPUS. First of all, required data are collected i.e., catchment areas & hydrological rainfall data. Water harvesting potential for the hostels and faculty apartments was calculated, and the tank capacity with suitable design is being considered. Volume of tank has been calculated with most appropriate method of estimation. Optimum location of tank on the basis of hydrological analysis and GIS analysis was done in the campus.
