Rainwater Harvesting Part 2: Guidelines and Manuals

Well, this is going to be a short one.

Check out the references below. Down there, you will find dozens of links including official guides, handbooks, and articles on rainwater harvesting, greywater, and water recycling. Good luck!

This may or may not have been my reference list for a thesis. Regardless, it's very useful if you want to read about rainwater harvesting and other ideas on water reuse.
