Utilizing rainwater harvesting in schools brings two major benefits. The most direct and substantial benefit is the saving in water and electricity bills. The educational benefit is that students learn to appreciate water resources and make water saving a habit and contribute to its spreading. School reconstruction works in the disaster areas must be planned as a whole and it is compulsory to include a rainwater catchment system. This is in fact much easier than a reconstruction design of an existing building. All data must be accurately calculated and all measurements must be estimated by professionals in order for every rainwater catchment system to achieve its ultimate economic effect.
