Rainwater harvesting (RWH) is a practice that involves storing rainwater and preventing its wastage. This method involves collecting rainfall, directing it to a storage system such as a tank, cistern, deep pit reservoir. Its purpose is to enable rainwater to seep through and recharge the groundwater. Additionally, dew and fog can be collected using nets or other suitable devices. It is important to note that rainwater harvesting is different from stormwater harvesting. The Indian Postal Department issued a postage stamp praising the Rainwater harvesting. Applications of rain water harvesting include watering various gardens, providing water for animals, irrigation, domestic use after proper treatment.
