Abstract

Scarcity of water for industrial and domestic sector is a major cause of concern for rural as well as urban communities in India. India is presently experiencing water shortage and hence invested heavily in promoting Rainwater Harvesting. Water harvesting is a technique deployed for collecting and storing rainwater from rooftops, the land surface or rock catchments. In this paper the authors have discussed the utility of surface water harvesting in order to recharge the aquifer, which had improved the status of groundwater and sustained its quality and quantity. Water harvesting strategy with proper planning and execution can be used as sustainable water management tool in resolving several drinking water issues in semi arid India.
