The Climate Information Platform (CIP) is a rich source of climate related information. This project aims to extend access to that information by providing an easily accessible toolkit to assess water harvesting capacity.
The location, catchment and storage information are provided by the user for analysis against rainfall data using a simple hydrological model. The first instance of the toolkit is for rainwater harvesting off hard surfaces such as roofs. The second instance in development will be to extend that to primary catchment analysis for modelling small dam catchments.
Time frames: 2 year project, from September 2014 to September 2016
Funder: Water Research Commission (WRC)
