Rainwater Harvesting For A Healthy Environment
The entire month of June went by dry and dropless. People were praying to the God of rains and wishing for a quick start to rainy season. Until the rains arrived, people all across the metro cities in India were warned of water cuts. Villagers were under stress as their crops needed water. July arrived and so did the rains, people breathe a sigh of relief. Have you ever noticed, this pattern is observed almost every year. People are under pressure whether rain Gods will be kind enough to shower their blessings or not. Water cut will be faced by big cities and farmers will be under constant pressure. By July, the stress is released and the entire city faces a situation where they are fed up of rainy season.
People soon start wishing for a full stop to this rainy season. A smooth life is disturbed tremendously by rains. Reaching offices, schools and colleges becomes an everyday task. Such is human behaviour, but that’s a different story. Our point here is to find a solution that will help release the pressure and lessen the stress experienced in the month of June.
The solution we have to this ever growing problem is rainwater harvesting. Rainwater harvesting is the accumulation and deposition of rainwater for reuse before it reaches for aquifer. This is done to save water for our everyday water use. During rainy season we all can do rainwater harvesting and use the same to clean dishes, clothes and house. If the water is treated right and boiled it can also be used for drinking. This way we can spend 2-3 months without using a single drop of water from our regular source. Rain water that is harvested by us will be used for our daily chores.
This will not only help you get done with your daily household chores for free, but also help you do your bit towards the environment. This will also help to put a full stop to the ever growing problem faced by one and all in the month of June. So, take a step forward, indulge in rainwater harvesting and contribute towards a healthy environment.
