Résumé
The aim of this thesis is the study of water resources management in Chios Island. The balance between water demand and availability has reached a critical level. To address the issue of pressure on water resources, the research mainly focuses on the collection of rainwater, which is potentially a water resource. Rainwater harvesting systems offer an alternative water source which can provide a supplementary water supply where the availability of water is a critical issue. Harvested rainwater is a renewable source of clean water that is ideal for domestic uses. The study investigates the effectiveness of rainwater harvesting systems for domestic non potable uses, on Chios Island, where water resources are limited. The main objective of the research is to carry out an analysis of a daily water balance model for the optimization of rainwater tank size. The analysis correlates local rainfall, catchment area the number of served residents and the rainwater harvesting system (RWH) cost.
