How to collect enough rainwater

The rainy season is when the water supply is good, why should I harvest rainwater?

1) This is not always the case and becoming increasingly less so. The current demand for water is 320 Million Liters Per Day while the supply is only 120 Million Liters a Day in the Monsoon. In 2002 the demand was 140 Million Liters a Day; every day the water situation becomes worse for somebody even in the monsoon, tomorrow that person could be you. More than 15% of Kathmandu’s population purchases trucks of water year round, meaning they spend more than 30,000 rupees a year on water.
