Every year, the water level in the state PUNJAB goes down by one meter. If this continues, the state will soon turn into a desert. So it is necessary to save every drop of water. “Every commercial building as well as big houses in the state must install Rain water harvesting system to save water ” Introduction
What is rain water harvesting ? It is the activity of direct collection of rain water Rain water can be stored for direct use or can be recharged into the ground water aquifer
Rain Water in India Total annual rainfall in India: 400 million hectare- meters (area x height) India’s area: 329 million hectares If evenly spread, average height: 1.28m Actual distribution: –Highly skewed area-wise –The desert receives less than 200mm annually, while Cherrapunji receives 11,400mm –But almost every part of India receives at least 100mm annually Key: even 100mm annual rainfall sufficient if harvested properly and where it falls
But…. Temporal distribution of rain in India also skewed Rainfall in India seasonal (unlike Western countries) Most of the country receives rainfall only for about 100 hours each year –Rough rule of thumb: #cm of rain = #hours rain received –E.g.: Jodhpur receives 40cm of rain in about 40 hours Natural implication of such skew: –Most of the rain water lost due to runoffs –Unlike the west, very little water percolates into the ground –Hence, the importance of harvesting structures for local self-sufficiency

4 Why Rain water harvesting To conserve & augment the storage of ground water To reduce water table depletion To improve the quality of ground water To arrest sea water intrusion in coastal areas To avoid flood & water stagnation in urban areas
Concept and Technology of Rainwater Harvesting Rainwater is a free source of nearly pure water and rainwater harvesting refers to collection and storage of rainwater and other activities aimed at harvesting surface and ground water. It also includes prevention of losses through evaporation and seepage and all other hydrological and engineering interventions, aimed at conservation and efficient utilization of the limited water. In general, water harvestings the activity of direct collection of rainwater. The rainwater collected can be stored for direct use or can be recharged into the ground water. There are two main techniques of rain water harvestings. Storage of rainwater on surface for future use. Recharge to ground water.
RAIN WATER HARVESTING Rain Roof Top Filtration or Recharge to ground water Storage Rooftop Water
Technology of Rainwater Harvesting
Example of Small level Rain Water harvesting in villages in India
Water available from Roof =Annual rainfall (in mm) x roof area (in sq. m) x co-efficient of run off for roof Water available from Roof = Annual rainfall (in mm) x roof area (in sq. m) x co-efficient of run off for roof Suppose the system has to be designed for meeting drinking water requirement of a 5-member family living in a building with a rooftop area of 100 sq.m. Average annual rainfall in the region is 600 mm. Daily drinking water requirement per person (drinking and cooking) is 10 liters. We shall first calculate the maximum amount of rainfall that can be harvested from the rooftop.Following details are available: Area of the catchments (A) = 100 sq.m. Average annual rainfall (R) = 600 mm (0.6 m) Runoff coefficient (C) = 0.85 Annual water harvesting potential from 100 sq.m. roof = A x R x C = 100 x 0.6 x 0.85 = 51 cu.m. (51,000 ltr) Availability of Rainwater Through Roof Top Rainwater Harvesting
The tank capacity has to be designed for the dry period, i.e., the period between the two consecutive rainy seasons. With the rainy season extending over four months, the dry season is of 245 days. Particular care must be taken to ensure that potable water is not contaminated by the collected rainwater. Drinking water requirement for the family (dry season) = 245 x 5 x 10 = 12,250 ltr. As a safety factor, the tank should be built 20 per cent larger than required, i.e., 14,700 ltr. This tank can meet the basic drinking water requirement of a 5-member family for the dry period.

All rainwater-harvesting systems comprise six basic components irrespective of the size of the system. 1. Catchments area/roof: The surface upon which the rain falls; the roof has to be appropriately sloped preferably towards the direction of storage and recharge. 2. Gutters and downspouts: The transport channels from catchments surface to storage; these have to be designed depending on site, rainfall characteristics and roof characteristics. 3. Leaf screens and roof washers: The systems that remove contaminants and debris; a first rain separator has to be put in place to divert and manage the first 2.5 mm of rain. 4. Storage tanks: Sumps, tanks etc. where collected rain-water is safely stored or recharging the ground water through open wells, bore wells or percolation pits etc. 5. Conveying: The delivery system for the treated rainwater, either by gravity or pump; 6. Water treatment: Filters to remove solids and organic material and equipment, and additives to settle, filter, and disinfect.

Plastic: Fiberglass: Fiberglass tanks are lightweight, reasonably priced, and long lasting, making them one of the most popular tanks in contemporary installations. As with the polyethylene and galvanized tanks, fiberglass tanks are commercially available and easy to transport. They are available in a wide range of sizes and can be specified for potable water. Fiberglass tanks should be coated or constructed to prevent penetration of sunlight into the tank. Plastic Liner: Plastic liners are sometimes used to line concrete tanks or tanks that have developed leaks. These liners can also be used to line low- cost, temporary collection tanks constructed of materials such as plywood. Plastic liners that are specified for potable use are commercially available. Polyethylene: In many countries these tanks are commercially available in a variety of sizes, shapes, and colors, and can be constructed for above or below ground installations. Polyethylene tanks are gaining popularity due to their relatively low cost and because they one slightly more durable than fiberglass with comparable life expectancy. Their light weight makes them easy to transport and relocate Materials for Rainwater Tanks
Metal: Galvanized steel tanks are also used. These are commercially available and reasonably priced and are quite popular. They are noted for their strength, yet are relatively lightweight and easy to move. Corrosion can be a problem if exposed to acidic conditions; some suppliers provide an inside liner to guard against this problem. In addition, high and low pH water conditions can result in the release of zinc.
Rainwater Harvesting System at Siel Chemical Complex
SIEL Chemical Complex is a Caustic Soda production plant located at Rajpura. It has ISO certification and the organization is very much concerned to improve the Environmental standards within and outside the premises of company. To improve the Ground water level in the surrounding areas, organization is trying to implement the Rain Water Harvesting within the premises. In SCC, we are having 02 nos units of rain water harvesting. The first unit of rain water harvesting was installed and taken in operation w.e.f. July 20,2007. It is estimated that around 500m3 of water will be charged into the ground in a year, with an average rainfall of 82 cms.
Rainwater Harvesting System at Siel Chemical Complex Here we are considering the only Rooftop of A & PO building, Security block building and HR and Administrative block building for rainwater harvesting. Rooftop area of A&PO building = 304 sq. m. Rooftop area of security block building = 192 sq. m. Rooftop area of HR and administrative block building = 662 sq. m. Total Rooftop Area = 1158sq.m. Average Rainfall in this region = cm. =.82 m. Assuming that 60% of total rainfall is effectively harvested. Volume of water harvested = 1158 X.82 X.6 cu. m. = cu. m. = ltr. So we can save 569 m3. of water annually from above said building
