The average annual rainfall in Assam is 2818mm, of which Guwahati alone receives 1698mm. However, the impact of rainfall in the state is zonal and not uniform throughout the state. As a result some areas are inundated, others remain rain-deprived. At this point it is wise to invest in rain water harvesting.
Assam demonstrates huge potential for successful rainwater harvesting. If implemented on a larger scale, it could be instrumental in curbing problems like floods, soil erosion, drought, water scarcity, and water-logging. This apart, the collected water could also be used for various activities like agriculture, animal husbandry, infrastructural development etc.
Since Large-scale Rainwater Harvesting won’t be a reality without the active participation of citizen at large, Government of Assam solicits your valuable and innovative suggestions covering ways to take rainwater harvesting from domestic to public setups.

Rain Water Harvesting is the urgent need of the time. Govt. should take strict and constructive steps ensuring RWH. In cities as well as in other places, RWH should be adopted to prevent natural calamities. RWH is the natural process to keep Nature pacified. I had installed RWH system in my house 10 years ago and I am much benefited.

Rain Water Harvesting is most essential on earth. We, the people in Assam are lucky enough that still we are getting enough rain and water. That's why we do not bother about water. But, we have seen that in the dry season, particularly in the city like Guwahati, people don't get consumable water, well/ponds get dry due to excessive under-ground water exploitation. If we start RWH, (it should be done by every household) crisis of water will diminish.

Kotchakorn Voraakhom a Thai girl who designed park which can reserve million litres of water in rainy season and this park can reduce flood effects in Bangkok. This water is used in dry season. So I request you to invite this girl and discuss about the matter and apply it in Guwahati also.
