Rainwater Harvesting Tour 2016

rainwater-collection2Rainwater harvesting is the practice of collecting rainwater for beneficial use. Usually this refers to collection of rainwater from a rooftop and storing it in tanks and cisterns for later use in or near the point of collection. The use of rain barrels is a simple form of rain water harvesting and a practical way to create some of your own water supply particularly for garden and outdoor chores.
