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.

Across the globe, almost everyone of us are experiencing imbalaces in our ecological system and for this we human race is itself to be blamed. Due to thick plantation and geographical terrain, the state almost every year is experiencing heavy to major rainfall which immensely disturbs normal habitat. If we start adopting the practice of rain water harvesting, we might able to tackle both the situations - at the time of scarcity of water & safe water to have during the floods.

If there is no rain, there is no water. Ground water is depleting. Floods are occurring easily because we individuals destroy the ecology. There is no proper community water bodies, before installing a rain water harvesting system in our houses, we should know how to save a tree and even if we need to build something, we can be clever and keep it safe and build anything without destroying it. There should be water tanks which is open in everyone's houses, so that rain water gets collected.

For safe Assam from the natural climatic hazards and especially loss of water, we need to respect the environment. There has been a lot of cases where trees are being cut down simply to make individual properties, hills and mountains being cut down just to make factories and lakes are being dried up again for individual consumption. It should be stopped. Before thinking of rain water harvesting let's plant more trees for the rain to occur. There should be man made ponds, reservoirs and tanks.

Make mandatory construction of Water Harvesting System before giving Construction clearance. Issue strict order to all the builders to follow the existing norms,otherwise penalize them. Steps may be taken to deepen waterbeds of certain ponds,lakes, or even rivers. Fisheries may be promoted so that more water bodies comes up. Also public education is must.

I propose for introduction of rule by Government to have a mandatory rain water harvesting mechanism for every upcoming housing projects [ Say Housing complex with minimum 15 flats or more] . Govt. can attract consumers with tax exemption facility which ultimately helps Govt. to minimize their expenditure burden during water crisis . It will also help job generation opportunity for the niche market.

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.
