For the efficient water management system, we can also add that rain catcher in buildings or housing facilities will be mainstream, such that these water reservoir can be used as source of irrigation for the vegetable gardens or hydroponic systems in the building itself. Hydroponics have been shown to efficiently use rainwater in tested proportions optimum for leafy vegetables. Hydroponic systems also saves on water, as it uses up on the average 1/3 water compared to soil based cultivation of leafy vegetables.
