Survival Garden: How to Build a Rainwater Collection System

Virtually no organisms on Earth can survive without water. Even the Australian water-holding frog needs to rehydrate every few years. One way to beat a drought, or simply to ensure you and your family have your own water source, is to collect rainwater.

That’s why City Prepping made this handy guide on how to build your own rainwater collection system.

Whether you live in urban areas, are going through a drought, or in a SHTF situation, you need water. It’s very possible you don’t have a natural water source, like a lake or a river, near you. Losing access to water can be devastating, especially if you have a garden that you rely on.

Being prepared with extra water storage not only helps you and your family, but those around you. By working with each other, everyone can fill in the gaps of supplies they’re missing.

All of these reasons, and more, are why you should consider collecting rainwater. By building a rainwater collection system, you can beat the odds by taking fate into your own hands. Just make sure to check local and state laws first, some areas have strict regulations on rainwater collection.
