Building a Home with a Rainwater Harvesting System

Building a Home with a Rainwater Harvesting System       
Our country has been suffering from a longstanding water crisis. Our groundwater is depleting, and all our water bodies are drying. We are left digging deep into unfathomable dimensions to find the glimpse of that one precious drop. The reason — we have been extracting and using more than Mother Nature can produce. So, what's next?
How can you deal with this scarcity of water?
Well, apart from depending mainly on the public water supply of your region, you can incorporate rainwater harvesting system into your home. And, if you are planning to build a new home, then you should make sure to integrate an efficient rainwater harvesting system from the very beginning. It would serve as a supplemental water source that can be utilized for your daily uses including – bathing, washing, cleaning, irrigation, and even drinking.

It helps in a rise in the groundwater level that is in the state of replenishment, reduction of water runoff, and prevents contamination of the surface of the water with pesticides and chemicals.
How can you harvest rainwater?

  • Rooftops: When it comes to catching rains, roof-tops make the best choice. They catch a significant amount of water that’s harvestable.
  • Pavements and driveways: When it rains, water runs-off from all the open areas including the pavements, driveways, sideways, and others. Being large areas, these can be used for rainwater harvesting. But you need to build these areas with pervious concrete, porous asphalt or permeable interlocking paver blocks.
  • Water bodies: Needless of mention, but water bodies like landscaped ponds and tanks can store water in large volumes.
  • Strom water drains: Your home, be it an individual property or a residential complex, already has a framework of storm water runoff drains. If these drains are maintained well, these can be one of the best and cost-effective ways of rainwater harvesting.
