Over the years of development processes, we encounter a lot of environmental problems and it is actually getting worse day per day. Flooding, effect of green house, pollution, and global warming are some of the effects that happened due to the development we have today. To pursue the need for a more sustainable development, rainwater harvesting has been recognized as one of the innovative solution. It has the potential to be implemented in Malaysia since we have a very high quantity rainwater source. The installation of rainwater harvesting facilities is proposed for the Faculty of Engineering in UNIMAS in which the criteria of storage tank sizing and system discussed into details by considering the water demand and the rain quantity itself. The storage tank shall be of size 2.083m x 2.616m. This system provides storage to keep rainwater and re-used the water for everyday non-potable consumption, mainly for toilet flushing, general cleaning and for watering plant. By implementing this system also, we will be able to reduce the load we put on the sewerage system which might cause flooding and health problem. The process will include observation on study area, rainfall data, and collection of data from faculty to determine the storage capacity required. Storage capacity will be determined by viewing from three different methods available that has been used widely in other project in Malaysia such as Demand Side approach, Supply Side approach and Swinburne Method
