Volume 11, Issue 7 , July 2020, Pages 1-5

http://dx.doi.org/10.5185/amlett.2020.071537

Abstract
  Water is the quintessential element of life. In the arid zones like Rajasthan, India, rainfall is scanty and ground water table is too low to satisfy the needs of living beings. One of the water sources is harvesting rain. Though the rainwater does not have its own contaminants but when it touches the ...  Read More
