Sen. Loren Legarda said that all schools and barangays in the country should have rainwater catchment facilities as part of efforts to reduce flooding and conserve water.

"These rainwater catchment systems can help address the country's water shortage problem, particularly during the dry season, while making use of the excessive water brought by the rains during the wet season. These facilities can also contribute to [reducing] the occurrence of flooding," Legarda said.

EPA encourages homeowners to explore the benefits of rain barrels

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is encouraging homeowners to explore the opportunity of introducing a rain barrel next to their homes this summer to help save precious water and control storm water runoff.

A rain barrel is a system that collects and stores rainwater from the roof that would otherwise be lost to runoff and diverted to storm drains and streams. A rain barrel is relatively simple and inexpensive to construct and can sit conveniently under any residential gutter down spout.

The WATERBANK School, conceived and designed by U.S.-based nonprofit PITCHAfrica, demonstrates the dramatic potential of rainwater harvesting in semi-arid regions and aims to put an end to water wars. Enabling schools to harvest, store and filter water in large quantities as part of a community-integrated approach to rainwater harvesting is a powerful concept, particularly in regions where groundwater and surface water resources are already under stress, said PITCHAfrica’s founder and director, Jane Harrison.

When It Rains, It Pours

The City of Los Angeles Stormwater Program partnered with S. Groner Associates (SGA) to launch a rainwater harvesting pilot program in 2010. The program’s purpose was to encourage residents in select cities to install rain barrels at their homes to harvest rainwater, which can be recycled to water gardens and landscaping. It used a combination of proven community-based social marketing practices, such as recruiting early adopters to establish the behavior as a social norm.
