Rain-water-harvesting using water falling on the roof is the simplest method of ground water re-charge and it can be implemented by everybody. At the micro level, the scale could be a single household, and it can be scaled up infinitely, as it can be implemented at every structure where potential for roof water collection and re-charging or storage of water exists.
