RAINWATER HARVESTING & RECHARGE

Dry season is here and with it water wars at neighborhood taps and tanker stops. To find a way out of scarcity, visit the Worldtech Consult demonstration center for  rainwater harvesting which encompasses the organization’s extensive research on water over the years

Citizens with access to clean water have a better chance of escaping poverty, fending off disease, and pursuing an education.

The United Nations estimated that 2.1 billion people live without safe drinking water in their homes — a situation with severe health implications that can also limit economic prosperity.

In many cases, people who are worried about the quality of their water resort to purchasing plastic water bottles. Not only is this bad for the environment, but it’s also not much better than drinking out of the tap.

The potential of water as a source of crisis and conflict is first dwelt upon, highlighting the increasingly dominant role of the state in (mis) managing ever-decreasing water resources. Solutions are then offered to solve water scarcity both in urban and rural areas.

Rainwater harvesting is the best and optimal response to scarcity, especially in Ghana with its copious but brief monsoons. Simple arithmetic makes this clear. Every year, Ghana receives only about 100 hours of rain, making it imperative that this bounty is harvested to last the rest of the annum.

The ideas for those keen on trying out rainwater harvesting in their homes, offices or village communities. Comprehensive harvesting techniques are delineated, catering to both urban and rural locales. Those who find the task too daunting can seek inspiration from our team.

Worldtech’s water campaign has been relentlessly promoting water harvesting as the ideal sustainable solution to eradicating ecological poverty. But the organization’s dream of  Siabi Senaye can only come true if individuals, communities and governments take the cause of rainwater harvesting to their hearts.

Rain is the only source of precious water in the world. Catching the rain where it falls and using it right there is the most efficient way of using this remarkable gift of God, Water. Roof-top Rainwater harvesting is found to be a very efficient way to “Catch the water where it falls”. Roof-top rainwater harvesting can go a very long way in mitigating the water crisis faced in urban communities and Industries. Though Rainwater harvesting is recognized as one of the best solutions for the present water crisis, there are a number of impediments in its effective implementation and most importantly maintenance. Though Rainwater is the purest form of water, due to culture and/or due to lack of awareness, there is still plenty of skepticism of using rainwater falling on One’s roof. The innovative process of designing and implementing Roof-top rainwater harvesting presented below will make;

  1. Rooftop Rainwater potable and ready for use.
  2. Remove all skepticism around the process of catching and using rainwater.
  3. Reduce the maintenance involved in rooftop rainwater harvesting.
  4. Making the cleaning process of filtration units as automatic as possible.
  5. Ensure enough checks and balances so that chances of contamination are minimum.
