As Doria (2006) notes, the type of water that a person consumes mainly depends on individual’s view and opinion about each type. However, it should be noted that most bottled water companies capitalize on the concerns that exist on the usage of water supplied by the municipality to homes through the taps. Some people feel that the

The effects of stormwater are very crucial to the development of an urban. In the natural environment, water drains in the soil, precipitates in plants and some flows naturally to rivers, ponds and lakes. Urban areas are filled with impervious pavements and structures that decreases the infiltration and precipitation rate compared to natural areas thus surface run-off is higher. This may result into many negative factors including washing away of pavements, soil erosion and waste generation thus land pollution. To reduce this, one must take sustainability into account by using Water Sensitive Urban Design to harvest stormwater and use it for important
