Our water resources are under pressure due to the drought and low water levels of dams, this occurs when there is significant changes in the rainfall patterns and climate changes therefor we need to value water and use it wisely. We are dependent on water as we use it on a daily basis, by trying to save a little water we will be able to make a difference to the environment. There are various alternative solutions you can look at to conserve water. This month we are looking into rainwater harvesting.
Rainwater harvesting is the accumulation and deposition of rainwater for reuse on site rather than allowing it to run off. Rainwater can be collected from the roof and other places where it is redirected to a tank for storage. This water can be used for garden irrigation or filling up the pool. There are bigger and more complex systems available that can be incorporated into the plumbing system of your home. With rainwater harvesting you are creating an independent water supply.
Some benefits for rain water harvesting:
- It is very cost effective
- You can have adequate water for irrigation
- It is easy to maintain
- You will have available water for water outages
