Rainwater Harvesting (RWH) Explained:

Definition:
Rainwater Harvesting is a method of storing and using rainwater for future purposes like irrigation, cultivation etc. the rainwater is collected from various hard surfaces mostly from rooftops and other manmade above ground hard surfaces.

Advantages:
-Provides an independent water supply during regional water restrictions.
-It also helps in the availability of potable water
-Reduces the cost for pumping of ground water
-Improves the quality of ground water through dilution when recharged
-Reduces soil erosion and flooding in urban areas.
-It is cost effective, simple, easy to construct and maintain, reduces the cost for infrastructure required for water supply.

Needs:
-For maintaining balance in the ground water level. with the increase in population, the use of ground water has drastically increased which is leading to constant depletion of ground water level.
-there are some regions which are affected by droughts, constant water supply can be maintained in order to reduce the effects of droughts.
-due to rapid urbanization, infiltration of rainwater into subsoil has decreased drastically and recharging of ground water has diminished.
-to fully utilize this natural source of water without wastage.

Potential Areas:
-Urban areas
-Rural areas

Techniques:
-Recharge Pit
-Recharge Trench
-Tubewell
-Recharge Well
-Gully Plug
-Contour Bund
-Gabion Structure
-Percolation Tank
-Check Dam/Cement Plug/Nala Bund etc.
