dc.description.abstract In this paper we present a new system for Rainwater Harvesting. This report describes a system design for Linimar's CAMTAC plant that rainwater from the roof to storage tanks inside the plant itself. The design consists of 11 drains 1 on the roof which connect to a series of pipes that act as a gravity network. The pipes eventually take the rainwater to two 5000 gallon storage tanks on the second floor of the plant. The design was simulated and the results show that our system can produce up to 26% of CAMTAC's water needs. The total set up cost of this system will come to $10500 with $6800 in savings within the first year. The estimated payback period is estimated at 1.5 years. en
