Peter Melville-Shreeve, Sarah Ward, David Butler, Rainwater Harvesting Typologies for UK Houses: A Multi Criteria Analysis of System Configurations


The work identifies several RWH system configurations that can outperform traditional ones in terms of specified cost and benefits. Selection of a specific RWH technology is shown to be highly dependent on user priorities. It is proposed that the system configurations highlighted could enable RWH to be cost-effectively installed in a broad set of contexts that have experienced minimal exploitation to date.
