Rainwater harvesting is the accumulation and deposition of rainwater for reuse before it reaches the aquifer. Uses include water for garden, water for livestock, water for irrigation, etc. In many places the water collected is just redirected to a deep pit with percolation. The harvested water can be used for drinking water as well if the storage is a tank that can be accessed and cleaned when needed.

Place a rain barrel under a downspout to collect rainwater. Barrels range in size and can be equipped with a spigot or hose for easy use. Rainwater is ideal for watering plants, cleaning the car or windows, or adding to the pool. The average household can save up to 1,300 gallons of municipal water solely during dry summer months. In areas of intermittent precipitation, a rain barrel can be utilized between rainstorms. Aside from saving water that may ultimately become runoff, the barrel saves money

Make a closed cemented tank of 20' X 20' with top-cover.
Make a inlet of Plastic-trough (May be temporary and as large as possible ) to drain-in the rain water into the tank, during rains.
Use the collected water, as and when needed.
