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.
