Rainwater Catchment Systems for Domestic Supply : Design, Construction and Implementation

Author(s): John Gould & Erik Nissen-Petersen


A review of practice in the collection of rainwater. It presents case studies with numerous examples from around the world which should help readers who are intending to construct a rainwater catchment system.

All aspects of design and construction are covered, including simple methods of sizing systems, erection of gutters, choice of materials, construction techniques, training, operation and maintenance.
