Rainwater harvesting system (RWHS) for domestic use at household scale consists of three components i.e.
Using the data of average daily rainfall data and average number of rain days which are presented in Table 1 and 50.2 [m.sup.2] of roof surface (the catchment area of the RWHS is shown in Figure 2), the monthly inflow to the storage tank is presented in Table 3.
The Outlook also reflects the short-term financial stress as RWHS absorbs the costs of the project and the potential for revenue-cycle disruption associated with implementation of the EHR, which is expected to go live in March 2018.
INCREASED LEVERAGE/DEBT BURDEN: The Negative Outlook also reflects the issuance of $20 million in additional debt in early fiscal 2017, which significantly increased RWHS's debt burden and puts further pressure on its operations over the next few years.
The willingness to take advantage of rainwater through a RWHS is reviewed in this section, where 92.8% of respondents show a high disposition to implement a RWHS; women being more prone to install a system (95.2%) than men (89%).
Regarding financial support to take advantage of rainwater, 72.5% of respondents answered positively to provide the financial resources to install a RWHS. Nevertheless, in the open question about who should participate in the investment for RWHS in local dwellings, 41% answered that the government should contribute, without specifying the level of government.
Adoption of RWHS is one of the most potential solutions that could save energy directly by reducing potable water demand.
(iv) A comprehensive cost-benefit analysis should be performed on different climate regions to get essential insight on the economic viability of rainwater harvesting system (RWHS).
