Do you need a water catchment system? A water catchment is an area where water is collected by the natural landscape; the outside edge of a catchment always being the highest point. Gravity causes all rain and run-off in the catchment to run downhill where it naturally collects in rivers, lakes or oceans. The water collected by the natural landscape can be used to help supply water for our needs, and this is particularly useful in areas faced with water scarcity. One of the inevitable consequences of climate change is that dry areas are get dryer and water scarcity is increasing. The estimation is that in 2025 approximately three billion people will be confronted with water stress, whereas some 500 million people will have trouble with water shortage. The world is facing a challenge when it comes to storing drinking water and water for hygienic purposes.
The Dutch-based company BUWATEC has been involved in several projects involving the storage of drinking water over the last years. We implemented projects on water purification and stayed in close contact with NGO organisations and national governments. While cooperating with water purification companies, we developed durable, future-oriented and affordable solutions. BUWATEC delivers basic tanks for both potable water as well as for drinking water.
