D. Brett Martinson & Terry Thomas

28th WEDC Conference, Kolkata, India, 2002

This paper reports research, mainly undertaken under a current DFID contract but also under an earlier EU contract, concerning low-cost domestic roofwater harvesting in the tropics. The authors acknowledge the support of these patrons with thanks. The paper discusses the need, means and scope for reducing the capital costs of cisterns in domestic roofwater harvesting systems. Related technical details have been reserved for a second paper at this Conference, namely Gunaratne, Martinson &. Ranatunga, ‘Reducing Rainwater Harvesting System Cost’.
