Costs And Benefits
University of Science and Technology
In this paper, it is argued that rainwater as an important alternative source
of community water supply cannot only be viewed in terms of cost justification
but also in terms of such unquantifiable benefit: as time savings and improved
hygiene. An attempt has been made to provide guidelines for cost calculations
of rainwater harvesting projects, bearing in mind that when resource constraints
are applied to the selection of an appropriate community water supply technology,
it may turn out that improvement of traditional sources is the only feasible option.
