Harvested rainwater quality - the importance of building design

  title={Harvested rainwater quality - the importance of building design},
  author={Sarah Ward and Fa. Memon and David Butler},
This paper summarises the physicochemical and microbiological quality of water from a rainwater harvesting (RWH) system in a UK-based office building. 7 microbiological and 34 physicochemical parameters were analysed during an 8 month period. Physicochemically, harvested rainwater quality posed little health risk; most parameters showed concentrations below widely used guideline levels for drinking water. However, RWH system components (e.g. fittings and down pipes) appear to be affected soft… CONTINUE READING
