What is Water storage?
Water Storage is a broad term referring to the storage of both potable (safe to drink, drinkable) and non potable (not fit for consumption) water.
Many African countries face water shortages due to drought or a lack of clean, available water. Water Reservoirs can be used to keep communities in Rwanda hydrated by rain or grey water storage.
Private homes, small/large businesses, factories and warehouses in particular can enjoy the many benefits of saving water such as cost reduction and in an emergency situation, fire suppression.
With climate change, unpredictable weather patterns and escalating utility costs mean finding water storage solutions are essential.
The Main uses of water storage tanks include:
Much of challenge of water scarcity in Rwanda is concentrated in Kigali, where the end of 2012 and beginning of 2013 marked an unprecedented water shortage for residents of the capital. Kigali residents resorted to rationing in some areas; others depended on untreated swamp water.
According to statistics, 90% of residents in the urban areas have access to water whereas in the rural areas the figure is at 85% for every 500 metres.
Reports are that Rwanda ordinarily relies on natural water sources, but the growing need for water has forced the country to turn to inland lakes. However, relying on the lakes around the city for water in Kigali is problematic. The lakes are presently used by fishermen; water extraction would threaten the ecotourism, food security and water reserves of the country.
Did You know: On average, women and children in rural areas spend 29 minutes daily fetching water.
African Tank Systems provide portable water storage solutions which are ideal for areas in Rwanda with known water shortages. Emergency water storage, such as rain water collection (Rainwater tanks / Rain Water Harvesting), can be used for:
In Rural areas or small farming communities, rain water helps break down compost and to keep livestock and harvests hydrated. Rain water is suitable to rinse fruits and vegetables for consumption straight from a garden or plantation.
