Abstract:

Rainwater Harvesting is and has been used extensively in tropic and arid zones to provide water for drinking, sanitation, irrigation and washing. There has been a great deal of interest generated by recent advances in India, China, Latin America and Africa and considerable effort is being expended in other arid regions, including the south and southwest US. For example, the Texas Water Development Board has produced The Texas Guide to Rainwater Harvesting 1 in cooperation with the Center for Maximum Potential Building Systems. In addition, Vision 212 and other international initiatives are focusing increasingly on local initiative, and rainwater harvesting for individual buildings or complexes can be thought of as one extreme of local initiative.
