Harvest to Harness 2010 -11

Introduction:
India is blessed with plentiful rainfall. Ranging from 1000 mm in arid Rajasthan to 11,000 mm in the Cherrapunji, rainwater flows through torrential streams, vast plains and deltas. Rainwater harvesting is the process of slowing the pace of water flow, and utilizing it to recharge the groundwater rather than go waste. Harvest to Harness(H2H) Rainwater Harvesting Competition aims to promote awareness and to document rainwater harvesting systems and technologies throughout the country. This event has been conducted annually since June 2004. The entries received every year are collated in a report published by the organizers and distributed free of cost to schools, colleges and all those who need information on rainwater harvesting. We invite one and all participate in H2H 2010.
