Abstract:
Water harvesting is defined as the creation of artificial catchments and reservoirs for the collection and storage of rainfall for beneficial purposes. These purposes can range from livestock use, recreation, domestic and industrial, as well as agricultural. The precipitation in the Avra Valley floor averages from 250 mm (10 in.) to 300 mm (12 in.). This is equivalent to 270,000 gallons to 325,000 gallons per acre per year. At domestic water prices of $2.00/1,000 gallons this is a harvestable product worth $540 to $650 /acre /year.
