For effective Rainwater Harvesting
Ethiopia is not that much different from other African countries that face water shortages and a complete lack of access to clean water. The shortage of water in Ethiopia can largely be contributed to drought and politics. People living in the rural areas collect water from wells, streams and ponds that have become extremely shallow because of the prevailing drought and are usually contaminated with animal and human waste, worms and other bacteria. The result is a constant outbreak of diseases such as cholera and dehydration in the villages and towns of Ethiopia. The child mortality rate in Ethiopia is the highest in Africa and can be attributed directly to the diseases brought on by contaminated water. Woman and children spent nearly 8 hours a day travelling to and from water resources with plastic cans on their back. A dire situation that prevent children from attending school and getting an education which would have enabled them to escape from the poverty cycle in which they find themselves. One of the proposed actions through which inhabitants of Ethiopia can take control of the situation and manage available water resources is to harvest whatever rainfall they do receive.
The process of rainwater harvesting can go a long way to alleviate the problem and improve water supply in Ethiopia. The collection and storage of rainwater in tanks and reservoirs during the rainfall season can ensure an optimal supply of good quality water during the scarce times for domestic, industrial, agricultural and commercial use. Rainwater is soft and relatively pure. It possesses no man-made contaminants, minerals or salts. It leaves no scale-build up in appliances such as kettles and geysers. The conservation of water in Ethiopia through high quality reservoirs and tanks is now possible thanks to Rainbow Reservoirs – the leading suppliers of reservoirs Ethiopia

The modular Rainbow Reservoirs are very easy to transport and install. Depending on the size of the tanks, installation can be done in only one day! Should you require a reservoir with a capacity of 400 000 litres or less, our tank installers in Ethiopia can construct the reservoirs on a sand base in one day’s time. All that is required from the customer is to prepare the sand base as per our instructions and to ensure that they adhere to all plans and bylaws. For the installation of water storage tanks with a capacity of more than 400 000 litres, a concrete base is needed. Because of its modular construction, reservoirs can be easily moved and relocated.
