Tamil Nadu , one of the four southern states of India, has what I would probably call the maximum Rain water Harvesting structures in the world.One of the reasons this has been implemented is the fact that people living in the coastal districts have over the years have suffered from Salt water intrusion and increased salinity of the ground water, which was used for both drinking and other purposes.
