A monsoon climate can deliver a year’s worth of rain in three months in South Korea. With monsoon and drought conditions in quick succession, South Korea has learned the hard way to fully harvest rainwater. Read more about in the article South Korea: A Shining Star in Rainwater Harvesting. It includes stories promoting rainwater harvesting on islands and Star City’s new apartment complex built with tanks for flood control, irrigation, and fire management.
Star City’s rain water harvesting policy is rain water harvesting for (and by) all people, collecting all available rainwater, by all possible methods, and in all possible locations, with the result that people and nature all win.
“Human beings should be aware of the importance of climate change adaptation, for which the biggest concern is rainwater management,” Professor Han Mooyoung notes.
