Current municipal format for harvesting rain water only requires one to dig soak pits which is not very effective. It does a very nominal amount of water harvesting. Water percolation through the soil happens very slowly. Water to reach 300 feet deep aquifers can take many years by using this method. The fastest and most effective way is direct tubewell recharge by rain water.
