Rainwater harvesting is an ancient technique enjoying a revival in popularity due to the inherent quality of rainwater and interest in reducing consumption of treated water.
Rainwater is valued for its purity and softness. It has a nearly neutral pH and is free from disinfection by-products such as salts,minerals, and other natural and man-made contaminants. Plants thrive under irrigation with stored rainwater.
Archaeological evidence attests to the capture of rainwater as far back as 4,000 years ago, and the concept of rainwater harvesting in China may date back 6,000 years. Ruins of cisterns built as early as 2000 B.C. for storing runoff from hillsides for agricultural and domestic purposes are still standing in Israel.
The water is free; the only cost is for collection and use.
The end use of harvested water is located close to the source, eliminating the need for complex and costly distribution systems.
Rainwater provides a water source when groundwater is unacceptable or unavailable, or it can be used when municipal water restrictions are in place.
Rainwater harvesting is superior for landscape and garden irrigation.
Rainwater harvesting reduces flow to storm water drains.
Rainwater harvesting helps utilities reduce summer demand peak and delay expansion of existing water treatment plants.
