What is rainwater collection?
Rainwater collection or rainwater harvesting is collecting the run-off from a structure or other impervious surface in order to store it for later use. Traditionally, this involves harvesting the rain from a roof. The rain will collect in gutters that channel the water into downspouts and then into some sort of storage vessel.
Why should you collect rainwater?
It will reduce water bills, provide an alternative supply during water restrictions and help maintain a green, healthy garden. Rainwater harvesting also decreases stormwater runoff, thereby helping to reduce local flooding and scouring of creeks.
