In the last 20 years, the ancient practice of rainwater collection has undergone a major renaissance in many countries. Urban households typically have a connection to a reticulated, treated (mains) water supply but can significantly lower mains water usage by installing a rainwater harvesting system. Most rural households have to source all their water on their property, and rainwater often provides a better quality household supply than river, bore or dam water.
