Rainwater Harvesting

Earth5R’s Rain Water Harvesting Project aims at making every building in India harvest the rain water to mitigate the water crisis.

Earth5R team have successfully installed Rainwater Harvesting units at various buildings in Mumbai, Delhi, Bangalore, Pune, Chennai, Kolkata, Varanasi, Jaipur, Ahmedabad, Gandhinagar and several other India cities.

Our team will visit your building and give a presentation on rainwater harvesting and water recycling. If needed we also help you set up the Rain Water Harvesting system for your building. To request a visit at any city across India please call us or WhatsApp on +91 9920045587

Rural and urban regions of India facing water shortages as a result of climate change have enormous possibilities in rainwater harvesting.

Buildings and societies across India can easily invest in rainwater harvesting technology that is low cost, simple to deploy and manage, and able to transform the lives of households and communities.

Overall the quantity of rain falling across the country during the monsoon is very good.

India is not water scarce. The rainfall contribution is more than adequate to meet the needs of the current population several times over.

For example, Mumbai would not be categorised as a ‘water-stressed city’ if rainwater harvesting is considered. The water crisis in India is more of an economic problem from lack of investment and not a matter of physical scarcity.

Until recently the importance of such harvesting as a buffer against climate-linked extreme weather has been almost invisible in water planning with cities relying almost exclusively on lakes, rivers and underground supplies, including using resources of nearby villages. Those villages often don’t have access to enough water to support their agriculture and livelihood.

Unlike big dams, which collect and store water over large areas, small-scale rainwater harvesting projects lose less water to evaporation because the rain or run-off is collected locally and can be stored in a variety of ways.

Large-scale infrastructure often by-pass the needs of poor and dispersed populations or rural and tribal area. Widely deployed, rainwater harvesting can act as a buffer against drought events for these people while also significantly supplementing supplies in cities and areas connected to the water grid.

Big cities like Mumbai, Delhi, Chennai, Kolkata, Bangalore, Pune have enough rainfall to supply the needs of several times its current population if only the water didn’t run off through the cement and concrete to the nallas, rivers and eventually to the ocean only to become unusable.
