Water harvesting is a technique of capturing rain water when it falls and taking measures to keep the water clean. 

The two ways by which water harvesting can be undertaken are: 
(i) Capturing run-off water from roof tops. 
(ii) Capturing run-off water from local catchments.

The traditional system of water harvesting/management in our legion are ponds, pits and lakes where rainwater is stored.
