Rain Water Harvesting

Rainwater harvesting is the accumulation and deposition of rainwater for reuse before it reaches the aquifer.Rainwater harvesting provides an independent water supply during regional water restrictions and in developed countries is often used to supplement the mains supply. Rain water harvesting replenishes the ground water table and enables our dug wells and bore wells to yield in a sustained manner. It helps in the availability of clean water by reducing the salinity and the presence of iron salts.

Rainwater collected from the roofs of houses, tents and local institutions, or from specially prepared areas of ground, can make an important contribution to drinking water. In some cases, rainwater may be the only available, or economical, water source.

Rainwater systems are simple to construct from inexpensive local materials, and are potentially successful in most habitable locations. Roof rainwater is usually of good quality and does not require treatment before consumption.

There are a number of types of systems to harvest rainwater ranging from very simple to the complex industrial systems. Generally, rainwater is either harvested from the ground or from a roof. The rate at which water can be collected from either system is dependent on the plan area of the system, its efficiency, and the intensity of rainfall.

We can carry out detailed feasibility studies about all aspects of rainwater harvesting, regardless of the size or nature of your industry. We undertake Rain Water Harvesting consultancy and provide a turnkey projects complete with engineered environmental Product & solutions.
