Research Notes on rainwater harvesting

The main publications of the DTU are Technical Releases, Working Papers, Externally reviewed publications and Research Notes. Most DTU publications are available here for download and hard copies of Working Papers are available free on request to the DTU. Technical Releases will also be sent free on request but only to addressees in developing countries.

Research Notes are smaller outputs from our research, progress reports of research undertaken by the DTU but as yet incomplete, case study material, and exceptional undergraduate project reports. Often these notes form the basis of fuller Working Paper.
