Rainwater Collectors for Villages In West Java, Indonesia

Ron van Kerkvoorden
Rural Water Supply West Java Project 0-9(a), Indonesia


The West Java Rural Water Supply Project is jointly sponsored by the governments of Indonesia and The Netherlands. The International Water Supply Consultants IWACO B.V. was appointed to provide consultant services, part of which included the development of simple techniques for water supply systems and the transfer of this information to the rural population so the villagers could construct their own rainwater collection systems.

This paper presents the use of local building materials, the value of close cooperation of local authorities and the rural population and how people can build their own drinking-water system.
