Community Water Harvesting

Rainwater harvesting has been practiced for over 4,000 years throughout the world. It has provided drinking water, domestic water, water for livestock, water for small irrigation and a way to replenish ground water levels. Traditionally, rainwater harvesting has been practiced in arid and semiarid areas. In such areas the water table is very low and the communities not only face shortage of water for drinking and domestic use, but face acute drought and famine due to non-arable land. Community Water Harvesting schemes when done in a sustainable manner can bring about lasting changes in the water table levels and can provide perennial sources of drinking and utility water in addition to increasing greenery, vegetation and arable land. Waterlife has expertise in strategizing and planning large community water systems that can bring about lasting and sustainable changes in the topography of water stressed areas.
