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.

যদিও ব্ৰক্ষ্মপুত্ৰই অসমৰ প্ৰধান নদী, কিন্তু প্ৰকৃতাৰ্থত গোটেই অসমখন সৰু বৰ অসংখ্য খাল বিল জান জুৰি আদিৰে ভৰি আছে। মুল নদী সমুহ গভীৰ আৰু চুবুৰীয়া পাহাৰীয়া ৰাজ্য সমুহৰ পৰা বৈ অহা জল ৰাশি ধৰি ৰাখে। কিন্তু আমাৰ দেশৰ ভিতৰত যি বৰষুণৰ ফলত পানী জমা হয় সেই সমুহ কিন্তু প্ৰথমেই ধৰি ৰাখে এই খাল বিল, পুখুৰী, জান জুৰি সমুহে, কিন্তু পৰিতাপৰ কথা হ’ল বেছি সংখ্যক এই খাল বিল অবৈধ দখলৰ কবলত পৰি মানুহে পুতি পেলাইছে বা বাসোপযোগী বা ব্যৱসায়িক কামত অথবা ছাহ বাগান হিচাপে গঢ়ি তুলিছে, ফলস্বৰূপেই কৃত্ৰিম বানৰ সৃষ্টি হৈছে।

The amount of rainfall that you can collect is governed by the following formula:

1″ of rain x 1 sq. ft. = 0.623 gallons

Easy to Remember Formula: 1″ of rainfall over 1,000 sf will yield 623 gallons To calculate the amount of rainwater you can collect, you need to know your annual average precipitation for your area. You can use the precipitation map below to find an approximate amount for your area.

Water is an important natural resource and is the very basis of our life. We use water for drinking, irrigation, industry, transport and for the production of hydro-electricity. Water is a cyclic resource which can be used again and again after cleaning. The best way to conserve water is its judicious use.
