Rooftop Rainwater Harvesting (RWH) Project was envisaged in the premises of Central Water and Power Research Station, Pune, in the early part of 2001. The prime objective was to recharge the ground water first and then if need be use it for drinking water supply. Ten years rainfall data was analyzed, the annual normal rainfall was estimated as 0.723 m. Geophysical investigations were carried out for selection of a recharge well, and the selected rooftop had an area of 1650 m2, the total quantity of runoff available for harvesting was estimated to be 858.92 m3. BIS (WRD 03-369 & 370) guidelines were followed in the design of the system. The system was being continuously monitored since 2001 and the data thus obtained analyzed and the cost benefit ratio is determined. The system had been found to be technically and economically viable.
