Rainwater harvesting for domestic use
This booklet explains how to collect, store and purify rainwater for direct use at household level. It is a practical guide to creating a rainwater harvesting infrastructure, from design to implementation that is illustrated with picture, tables and examples from RAIN'S experience. However, it is by no means comprehensive, since there are numerous specialised RWH techniques determined by local circumstances such as rainfall, culture, materials and costs. It is hoped that this book will be helpful to households as well as to community-based organisations, NGOs, local government staff and extension workers in both rural and urban areas.
