Four different catchment systems for the harvesting of rain water were studied. These were the Graveled Plastic, Compacted Earth (CE), Compacted Earth Sodium Treated (CEST) and the Asphalt-Plastic-Asphalt-Chip coated (APAC) catchments. Installation methods were developed to reduce costs particularly with regard to the Graveled Plastic, CE and CEST catchments. The rock filled, suspended and raft covered tank methods were used with the above catchments to form economic water harvesting systems. The different conditions where the above water harvesting systems were to be used were delineated. Considerable effort was expended in the development of a multipurpose water harvesting system.
