Abstract

This book aims to provide a state-of-the-art review of practice in the collection of rainwater. There are case studies with numerous examples from around the world intended to assist anyone involved in the design or construction of a rainwater catchment system. The main focus of the book is on the implementation of roof and ground catchment systems for meeting either total or supplementary household water requirements. Issues covered include simple methods of sizing systems, erection of gutters, choice of materials, construction techniques, training, operation and maintenance. Other aspects touched upon include: water quality, health, social, financial, cultural, political, institutional and gender issues.
