On the basis of hydrological and technical as well as social and cultural conditions, appropriate solutions for RWH are developed, discussed, and evaluated. Cost effective rainwater harvesting systems for small holder farmers in different contexts; Models for integrating water infrastructure and farmer livelihoods. About University of Nairobi . February 2020 RUVIVAL Team. International Journal of Water Resources and Environmental Engineering Full Length Research Paper Rainwater harvesting: An option for dry land agriculture in arid and semi-arid Ethiopia Binyam Alemu Yosef1* and Desale Kidane Asmamaw2 1Department of Soil and Water Resources Management, College of Agriculture, Wollo University, Ethiopia. The paper aims towards the development of the framework for domestic rooftop harvesting for drinking water. Water was collected in a well maintained catchment system from rain events over one year and chemical analysis was performed regularly to observe the quality of collected water. Rainwater harvesting systems are often used as both an alternative water source and a stormwater management tool. Yadav Department of Civil Engineering, Anantrao Pawar College of Engineering & Research, Pune, India 3Mr. September 2017 11. Posted 28. Study Area. Ajay Kharat, 5Mr. Rain water harvesting includes roof water harvesting, in-situ water harvesting, run-off harvesting, flood water harvesting and subsurface water harvesting (Finkle and Sergerros, 1995). S.J. Many studies have focused on the water-saving potential of these systems, but research into aspects that impact stormwater retention—such as demand patterns and climate change—is lacking. The sustainability of RWH is based on reliable water supply and production, effectiveness of water use (increase rainwater productivity) and minimal negative impacts on natural resources (Pachpute et al., 2009). The system is actually built in saswad city, Maharashtra state of India. The main of this paper is to make efficient use of rainwater and adoption of newly launched concept of nature conversion. The paper is based on the analysis of survey record of around 50 houses of different rooftop areas of peri-urban area of Dhule city. Some 170 articles published between 1970 and 1980 were found, all of them revealing an awareness of the increasing need for rainwater harvesting and a recognition of its potential. The water collection, convey and storing the water for later cost of total project is Rs. In this paper, results of the investigations on rainwater harvesting (RWH) in central northern Namibia are described, which are part of the transdisciplinary research project CuveWaters. Archeological evidence attests to the capture of rainwater as far back as 4,000 years ago. This post is also available in: Español (Spanish) Français (French) Water may seem abundant, but less than one percent of the world’s water is readily accessible for human needs. This article reviews recent literature on rainwater harvesting and its potential application for crop production. Rainwater is valued for its purity and softness.
