Rain Water Harvesting RWH- process of collecting,conveying &amp; storing water from rainfall in an area forbeneficial use. Storage in tanks, reservoirs, underground storage-groundwater Hydrological Cycle </li> <li> 3. What Is Rainwater Harvesting?RWH technology consists of simple systems to collect, convey,and store rainwater. Rainwater capture is accomplishedprimarily from roof-top, surface runoff, and other surfaces.RWH either captures stored rainwater for direct use (irrigation,production, washing, drinking water, etc.) or is recharged intothe local ground water and is call artificial recharge.In many cases, RWH systems are used in conjunction withAquifer Storage and Recovery (ASR). ASR is the introductionof RWH collected rainwater to the groundwater / aquiferthrough various structures in excess of what would naturallyinfiltrate then recovered for use .ppt (3) </li> <li> 4. Why Rainwater Harvesting?Conserve and supplement existing water resourcesAvailable for capture and storage in most globallocationsPotentially provide improved quality of waterSupply water at one of the lowest costs possible for asupplemental supply source.Capturing and directing storm water (run-off) andbeneficially use itCommitment as a corporate citizen - showcasingenvironmental concernsPublic Mandate (India)Replenishing local ground water aquifers where l oweringof water tables has occured .ppt (4) </li> <li> 5. Why Not RWH?Not applicable in all climate conditions over the worldPerformance seriously affected by climate fluctuations that sometimes are hard to predictIncreasingly sophisticated RWH systems (ASR) necessarily increases complexities in cost, design, operation, maintenance, size and regulatory permittingCollected rainwater can be degraded with the inclusion of storm water runoffCollected water quality might be affected by external factorsCollection systems require monitoring and continuous maintenance and improvement to maintain desired water quality characteristics for water end-useCertain areas will have high initial capital cost with low ROI .ppt (5) </li> <li> 6.

Ground Water RechargeUnder natural conditions it may take days to centuries to recharge ground waterby rain water. As we need to replenish the pumped water, Artificial Recharge ofGround water is required at some locations. .ppt (9) </li> <li> 10.

Ground catchments systems channel water from a prepared catchmentarea into storage. Generally they are only considered in areas whererainwater is very scarce and other sources of water are not available.They are more suited to small communities than individual families. Ifproperly designed, ground catchment systems can collect largequantities of rainwater. .ppt (11) </li> <li> 12. Storage Storage devices may be either above or below ground Different types include Storage Tanks Water Containers Lagoons or Lined Ponds Infiltration Ponds Size based on rainfall pattern, demand, budget and area .ppt (12) </li> <li> 13. Percolation Pit To divert rainwater into an aquifer, The percolation pit is covered with a perforated concrete slab The pit is filled with gravel/ pebbles followed by river sand for better percolation. The top layer of sand must be cleaned and replaced at least once in two years to remove settled silt for improving the percolation .ppt (13) </li> <li> 14.

Recharge Wells The runoff water from rooftops or other catchments can be channelized into an existing /new well via sand filter to filter turbidity and other pollutants Abandoned wells can also be used Cost-effective process, which not only conserves rainwater for immediate use but also helps to enhance the local ground water situation .ppt (15) </li> <li> 16.
