Abstract: The scarcity of natural water resources and the increasing growing gap between demand and supply of potable water in most part of Minna led into this research with a view to provide an alternative source of water supply for domestic purposes in order to mitigate water supply challenges. A total of 250 questionnaires were distributed to enable the researchers examine the level of awareness and adoption of rainwater harvesting techniques within the geographic location under consideration. This study describes the magnitude of rainwater harvesting in Minna obtained from a house-to-house survey, their methods of rainwater collection, practices, storage and usage. The result of the questionnaires using descriptive statistical method shows that the level of awareness is 99.5% but the adoption of these noble techniques is poor as people of Minna harvest rainwater but the quantity could not serve the family into the dry season. As they ran out of water even within few days after rainfall, in a bit to improve on this lapses, this project therefore recommend the following; the design of suitable rainwater harvesting structures in theses locality, establishing regional water plans, creating competition in water supply, increasing water supply options for both short and long terms, and other advanced water related technologies of which rainwater harvesting technology belong, and reducing the current waste in water use. Some specific programs to implement policies would enable and ensure water conservation becomes a duty for all users and sect.
