Rainwater harvesting is a sustainable practice that involves collecting and storing rainwater for various uses, such as irrigation, landscaping, toilet flushing, and even drinking water in some cases. This environmentally friendly technique helps to conserve water resources, reduce demand on traditional water supplies, and mitigate stormwater runoff and erosion. Rainwater harvesting systems typically consist of catchment surfaces, such as rooftops or impermeable surfaces, gutters or channels to collect rainwater, filters to remove debris and contaminants, storage tanks or cisterns to hold the collected water, and distribution systems to convey water to its intended use. Depending on the scale and complexity of the system, rainwater harvesting can be implemented at the household, community, or even city level. By harnessing rainwater as a valuable resource, rainwater harvesting promotes water sustainability and resilience in the face of climate change and water scarcity.
