This article reviews recent literature on rainwater harvesting and its potential application for crop production. Technically, the rainwater harvesting system consis ting of rooftops, gutters, down spouts, filter and storage tank is capable of collecting/impoundin g rainwater to supply and support the drinking water needs of 8-12 members of the family throughout the six-month dry period (January-June) of the year. Construction, operation, and maintenance are not labor intensive. Cultural Acceptability Rainwater harvesting is an accepted freshwater augmentation technology in Asia. Storage reservoir or tank to store the water until it is used.
Thesis Rainwater harvesting system: Quality and impacts on public health By: Lina Mohammad Ali Tamimi 1135351 Supervisor: Prof. Dr. Issam Al-Khatib February 2016 . Catchments or roof surface to collect rainwater 2. The more waste in the Philippines causes the increase in global warming, high temperature and less oxygen because of the air pollution. Some 170 articles published between 1970 and 1980 were found, all of them revealing an awareness of the increasing need for rainwater harvesting and a recognition of its potential.
Delivery system to transport the water from the roof to the storage reservoir (g utters and drainpipes) 3. Rainwater harvesting technologies are flexible and can be built to meet almost any requirements. The Philippines’ trash increased by 40 percent in 2010 and the ocean found 1,355,236 items of trash and people, nearly 400,000 volunteers, gather from around the world just to help in the Philippines. Civil engineering pertains to the development of our natural and physical environment. It deals with things including designs and construction of dams, bridges, buildings, etc. Rainwater Harvesting is the way to support Eco-system and Human well-being. This simple method can put forward a solution which will be workable in areas where there is sufficient rain but the groundwater supply is not sufficient on the one hand and on the other surface water resource is insufficient .

In Thailand and the Philippines, both governmental and household-based initiatives played key roles in expanding the use of this technology, especially in water scarce areas such as northeast Thailand. One typical roof-top rainwater harvesting system consists of three basic components: 1. in Water and Environmental Sciences Rainwater Harvesting systems in Yatta Town: Water Quality and Impacts on Public Health By: Lina Mohammad Ali Tamimi 1135351 This thesis was … Rainwater harvesting or the collection of rainwater in a proper way, can be a permanent solution to the problem of water crisis in different parts of the world.
