Independent Residential Rainwater Harvesting Guide. This guideline is provided by Urban Water Cycle Solutions (UWCS) and the Rainwater Harvesting Association of Australia (RHAA) for above ground rainwater harvesting systems connected to residential dwellings in urban areas. This independent design specification is a living document that will be regularly updated in response to evidence, discussions and independent science. The user is encouraged to provide comments and feedback to this webpage for inclusion in the ongoing review process.

Presentation at the HWRS2016 conference in Queenstown New Zealand at 12 noon on Thursday 1 December 2016. The use of global average water demands rather than spatial and temporal detail in analysis of regional water systems generates dramatic reductions in certainty about system behaviour. This leads to uncertainty in understanding of system performance. Use of global averages in simulation of regional water systems is unlikely to describe the spatial and temporal contribution of distributed solutions that generate water resources or reductions in water demands within a metropolis.
