Rainwater harvesting is the accumulating and storing of rainwater for re-use before it reaches the aquifer. It has been used to provide drinking water, water for livestock, water for irrigation, as well as other typical uses. Rainwater collected from the roofs of houses and local institutions can make an important contribution to the availability of drinking water.
Rain water harvesting is essential because :-
Surface water is inadequate to meet our demand and we have to depend on ground water. Due to rapid urbanization, infiltration of rain water into the sub-soil has decreased drastically and recharging of ground water has diminished. 'ABHINAV SAMAJ' is committed for adequate efforts in this field.
