Does the collected water from rainwater harvesting remain fresh ?
Rainwater Harvesting involves storing of rain water for future use. Based on the configuration of the rainwater harvesting system, the water is stored in:
- Plastic Tanks
- Surface Tanks
- Underground Water Tanks
- Local water bodies
- The soil protects the tank from light and heat.
- The temperature of water from the underground tank only reaches 6 to 8° C all year round
- Due to the darkness and temperature, algae and microorganisms cannot form
