Lack of resources has led us to start conserving them. Rainwater harvesting is one of the techniques of saving water, read on to know more about it.
You must have read the water cycle when you were a kid. In it, you learnt that water evaporates and leaves the surface of the earth to be a part of the sky. And, when the clouds thus formed could not hold it any more, it rained. This is a natural phenomenon which does not require any kind of human intervention. But due to rapid industrialization and modernization, the water table which is the level of water under the surface of the earth, is going down. This has led to heavy water scarcity at different places around the earth so it is inevitable that this grim situation requires our unparalleled focus.
The simplest of the ways to avoid water scarcity in an area is not to let even a drop of water go waste. This would enable us to conserve the water table and keep it high. Even rudimentary understanding of this fact would lead us to save a lot of water and enjoy life without water issues. With this, we can also recycle water for washing cars or watering the backyard. Another popular way of conserving water is Rainwater harvesting which has helped many societies overcome their perennial water issues.
Saving rain water is an effective way of not letting go the clean water that pours from the sky and also inculcates the habit of conservation in us. With rain water you can clean your porch, water your kitchen garden, wash your cars and do a lot of those activities wherein you do not require fresh or very clean water.
