Rain Water Harvesting is probably the only best thing that happened to chennai in the past few years. With summer coming to an end, and the season of depressions beginning, don you think half a decade old rain water harvesting facilities in the city can withstand? I believe the city has not been successful in reaping the benefits of this amazing opportunity, thanks to political rivalry and laziness on the part of our rulers! What do you think?

My house has RWH mechanism installed in it and I think this is the only way to replenish our water table.

even though the government took extreme measure and made it compulsory to do rwh in all houses, people and officials have never took serious action. in a place where am living, the pipes are not at all connected to the drain well. also all rain tapping surfaces are not connected with pipes. much of these water are wasted in drainage, but all houses got the rwh sticker from municipality! irony is that the officials never checked if rwh is done properly or not!!!

I have seen people buying water with huge amount of money. I think rain water harvesting is one of the method to save water. Here the water bills are very high. I think if we save rain water, we can use it for domestic purpose and save the water bills. I am planning to put a rain water harvesting system. The problem is that I cannot afford to buy one. What I am doing right now is collecting rain water in buckets. I am planning to put a huge plastic tank in the future to save rain water.
