INTRODUCTION
Rain is the ultimate source of fresh water. With the ground areaaround houses and buildings being cemented, particularly incities and towns, rainwater, which runs off from terraces and roofs, was draining into low-lying areas and not percolating intothe soil. Thereby, precious rainwater is squandered, as it isdrained into the sea eventually.Rain water harvesting is a system by which, the rainwater that collects on the roofs and the area around the buildings isdirected into open wells through a filter tank or into a percolation chamber , built specifically for this purpose.Rainwater is collected directly or recharged into the ground toimprove ground water storage. Water that is not extracted fromground during rainy days is the water saved.
