Rain water cistern systems can serve multiobjectives. Although they are traditionally used for domestic water supply, however they have been used for other purposes. From an economic view point, if a rain water cistern system (RWCS) can serve multiobjective uses, it could afford a higher initial and operation/maintenance costs. Therefore, planners of rain water cistern systems should seek multiobjective uses to enhance the feasibility of their applicability. Examples of :cain water cister systems multiobjective uses are presented in this paper, Readers are encouraged to report their experience related to this subject.
