Rainwater harvesting is the accumulation and deposition of rainwater for reuse on-site, rather than allowing it to runoff. Our water supplies are falling and water restrictions are in place in many communities to reduce overall water usage and protect supplies. With rainwater harvesting the rainwater is collected in a water storage tank or cistern and stored for later use.
The average rainfall recorded in Bangalore was 972 mm (Average for 30 years) mainly distributed over 8 months i.e. from April-November with around 60 rainy days in a year. As per BWSSB (Bangalore Water Supply and Sewage Board) rain water could be the immediate resource to augment existing water supply system.
There are other significant benefits as well that can be achieved by using rainwater. Few definitive benefits of rain water harvesting are mentioned below.
