Both books describe some green ideas that soppurt society with much lower water usage. Which ideas did you find most interesting or innovative? Are there any you\'ve implemented in your own family?There is a former policeman from the small Indian village of Rajsamadhiya. He implemented a system of small ponds that were dedicated to collecting the annual monsoon rains in order to replenish local aquifers. There were certain restrictions, however, on how the water was to be managed. For example, direct withdrawals from the ponds were prohibited and farmers weren\'t allowed to grow water-thirsty crops such as sugarcane or alfalfa. Harvesting the rain is one of the most brilliant ways to capture water, but it is also vital to use the collected water with great discretion. In addition to the small ponds that collect the rains from monsoons, there are northern Chinese villages that harvest water in another manner. Simply by placing barrels where gutters release their water can be an effective way of water harvesting. The run-off from just one storm into three barrels could be enough to supply water to the home for two weeks, for both drinking and utilities. I believe construction of ponds to replenish aquifers has already started to become widespread in the United States, but creating individual systems that harvest rains such as the rain barrels found in northern China would help to further the cause of water conservation on an even larger scale. With individual households harvesting their own water, this institutes a sense of self-sustainability, and ponds to replenish aquifers could become beneficial for more water-consuming activities such as farming. My family has yet to invest in a water-harvesting technology, but I believe one day it will be the norm for everyone to have one. All around there would be enough water to go around for everyone. Implementing this system on a global scale could officially end the global water crisis if enforced correctly. Harvesting water could very well be the solution we need for providing water to places that need it most.
