What is rainwater harvesting

Rainwater harvesting means capturing rain where it falls or capturing the run off in your own village or town. It involves taking measures to keep that water clean by not allowing polluting activities to take place in the catchment area. Rainwater from rooftops should be carried through downtake water pipes or drains to

a storage/harvesting

system. Water from sloping roofs could be caught through gutters and downtake pipes. At terraces, the mouth of each drain should have wire mesh to restrict floating material.Slide4
