Abstract: Millions of people in every part of the world do not have means of approach to pure water for household purposes. In many parts of the world typical piped water is either not present, irregular or too costly. One of the greatest dares of the 21st century is to control the increasing water scarcity. Rainwater harvesting has thus retrieved its significance as a precious substitute or additional water resource, in addition to other typical water supply technologies. Much undeniable or possible water scarcity can be pleased if rainwater harvesting is exercised more widely. This project deals with provision of different options for economical water storage tank in college campus situated in Solapur city. The most economical option is of water bank whose payback period is of 4 to 5 years. The other 2 options are costly as payback period is more. The main objective is to create efficient Rainwater harvesting system for big institutes and housing societies. This project will be useful to fulfil the water demands in dry period and to make sustainable use of water resource. This stored water can fulfil the demands for different uses like washing purpose in toilets, gardening, washing vehicles etc.
