Rainwater harvesting is a simple, economical and eco-friendly technique of preserving every drop of water by guiding the rainwater that falls to borewells, pits and wells through small diameter pipes. Let us all work together to overcome the problem of water scarcity in Delhi by harvesting this precious bounty of nature. Join the Rain Water Harvesting Drive.
