(For A Thought) Rainwater Harvesting

Every m2 of roof, could collect 1000 litres ( 1 metric ton ) of rainfall each year. (more in the west, less in the east of the UK)

A low cost, environmentally thoughtful idea would be to collect rainfall into a pond. Divide as 2/3 pond, 1/3 sump. This way you could easily save 5, 6, even 9 tons in the sump section.

The collected rainfall could water your garden, provide water for washing cars and jet washing garden paths.

If every house did this, then my street could save 400,000 litres a year. Leeds could collect more than 2 million tons of water each year.

So there is no reason to use drinking water for these things again. Every ton of water collected, leaves a ton in the reservoirs for everyone to drink.
