Let’s harvest rainwater

Dear editor,
IS IT possible to build water storages to capture all the rainwater that is being wasted after every downpour?
I am sure if there was a deliberate policy or effort to harvest the rainwater, this would mitigate the challenge of floods that have affected all communities.
It is sad to see large amounts of water go to waste while some areas have been experiencing perpetual shortage of water.
Furthermore, the same water, if harvested, would be used in the agriculture and other sectors to ensure that the country is food-secure without always waiting for rain, especially with the change in rainfall patterns brought about by climate change.
Let us learn to preserve our God-given water; water is indeed life.
