Rainwater is simply water that falls as precipitation from clouds.

Rainwater harvesting (factsheet, Muttart Conservatory Case Study) is the collection and conveyance of rainwater from a building’s roof to storage in a rain barrel or a cistern for re-use in irrigation or other approved non-potable uses.

Key components of a harvesting system include the roof surface, gutters and downspouts, gutter screen, cistern, and pumping and piping system.
