Roadside Rainwater Harvesting

In cities pedestrian walks are constructed on both the sides of the roads. Based on the width of the road the width of the pedestrian walks also increases. These pedestrian walks are generally constructed using impervious cement paver blocks, hence rainfall falling over these areas are adding to the creation of surface runoff or stormwater. This being a pure rainwater, this runoff can be directly used for artificial groundwater recharge by retrofitting technique of drilling shot holes within the pedestrian walk areas.
