For more information, start with http://www.arcsa.org or Google “Rainwater Harvesting”. The Texas Manual on Rainwater Harvesting is available online for free download.

That was a great article!…and yours was an imaginary day without water. The ones I experienced were for real! I come from a country, Cuba, where days like the one you described are more than a fictitious passage! Now that I living in the States, I can tell you that in fact the people who live here have to be prepared to manage this precious supply for they do not know what to lack water means, thank God! Thank you for spreading the word and create awareness on this matter!

Forget about a day we can’t even live without it even for 6 hours, its very important for a human to survive. If you want to see the resorts can check Justdialand enjoy your weekend.

A world that is 70% water, 3% that is fresh and Les than 1% that is potable and most of that is polluted, one winners why no one has ever though of mass desalination of sea water as a possible solution to the water shortage problem. Reducing, reusing water is good, but why not produce more fresh water and introduce this to watersheds where the water can be transported via existing water infrastructure? Just food for thought.

With all its inconveniences, we CAN live without electricity, but we realy CAN’T live WITHOUT WATER, at least not for a long time.

I have not heard of this being done here in SC.
