Abstract: The scarcity of natural water resources and the increasing growing gap between demand and availablc supply of potable water in Kubwa led me into this research with a view to provide an a\tcl'l1at ive sour~:t: of water supply for domestic purposes in order to mitigate water supply chalkngl!s. i\ total of 200 qucstionnaires were distributed to enable the researcher examine the Icvel of awareness and adoption of rainwater harvesting techniques within the I geographical location under consideration. This study describes the magnitude of rain water harvcsting in Kubwa obtained flom a house to house survey, their method of rainwater collection. practices. storage and usage. The result of the questionnaires using descriptive statistical method shows that the level of awareness is 100% but the adoption of these noble techniqucs is poor as only 50% collected rainwater. 83% of the Respondents that collected rainwater attributed their collection to unreliability/inaccessibility of the public water supply amollgst other findings. In a bid to improve on this lapses, this project therefore recolllmcndcd the following; the design of suitable rainwater harvesting structures in theses locality. establishing regional water plans. creating competition in water supply, incrcasing watcr supply options for both short and long terms, and other advanced water related technologics of which rainwater harvesting technology belong, and reducing the current waste in watcr lise. Some specific programs to implement above policies are outlined.
