Rain falls and is directed into a sanitary water tank, usually by guttering. Rock catchment system operate in the same way, on a larger scale, with the rainfall that flows from a steep rock face directed and collected.
Work by distributing water to locations through a system of pipes. Gravity Fed Water Systems use the pull of gravity to direct the flow of water to a sanitary storage tank. Piped Water Systems work by distributing piped water to a series of taps in a community.
A system is built to capture water from a naturally occurring spring source, and the clean water is stored.
Wells are dug by hand, to reach the water stored in the aquifer below, at a depth of no more than 15 meters. Hand-dug wells, or shallow wells, are the most common way of extracting water in rural areas of the developing world.
