Roads for Water

Harvesting floodwater from roads has multiple positive effects. It reduces water damage to roads and reduces damage to the landscape, agriculture and properties from roads. On top of that, the harvested water can be used productively for groundwater recharge, increased soil moisture and water retention and can be used as irrigation water for agricultural activities.
