list two advantage associated with water harvesting at the community level .

Advantages of water harvesting :

  • Water does not evaporate. Instead, it percolates into the ground, thereby resulting in the recharging of wells.

  • The stored water provides moisture to the vegetation in and around the area.

  • Rainwater harvesting improves the quality of groundwater by the process of natural filtration of fluorides, nitrates, and salts. This method of storing and utilizing water prevents soil erosion and flooding. Thus, it is an eco-friendly method.

  • The stored water does not provide a breeding ground for mosquitoes and microorganisms, unlike the stagnant water in ponds and lakes.
