Course programme

Rainwater harvesting essentially means collection and storage of the rainwater from rooftop or from a surface catchments for future use. This takes care of the ever growing requirement for water, increases soil moisture level thereby enhancing urban greenery, increase in the ground water table through artificial recharge and also improves quality of ground water. Town planners and civic authorities all over the country have introduced by laws for encouraging rainwater harvesting. Despite various initiatives including legislative measures, very little rainfall is conserved and harvested. There is a tremendous possibility for harnessing the rain water for augmenting the existing water resources.
