Rainwater harvesting and conservation in principle is a simple technique of catching and holding rainwater where it falls such as rooftops, land surface or rock catchments using simple techniques such as jars and pots as well as more compound technique for instance undergroun d check dam. These techniques usually found in Asia and Africa arises from practices engaged by primeval civilization within these regions and still performs as a major source of drinking water supply in rural areas. Effectiveness of the rainwater harvesti ng depends on appropriate design of the systems. Be it storage or a recharge structure, an inappropriately planned system will guide to operational problems, thereby raising the operation and maintenance cost. This research study mainly focous on design of rain water harvesting system at Sir Padamapat Singhania University(SPSU), Udaipur. This also includes the design of recharging dug wells or abandoned bore well. This facility will collect water from roof top and carry it all the way up to recharge dug wel l or abandoned bore well. Running cost of the facility is almost trivial. Water harvested from the roof catchments usually is of acceptable quality for household requirements. Depending upon household requirement water collection capacity can be increased as needed within the available catchment area .
