What is the impact if the rain water not been harvested?
October 30, 2011 1:00PM
Rain is the ultimate source of fresh water. With the ground area
around houses and buildings being cemented, particularly in
cities and towns, rainwater, which runs off from terraces and
roofs, was draining into low-lying areas and not percolating into
the soil. Thereby, precious rainwater is squandered, as it is
drained into the sea eventually.
