I have seen numerous rain water collection systems, both in Port and in 
rural locations, ranging from gerry-rigged sheet metal funnels to 
elaborate systems feeding tanks as large as 15,000 gal. providing water 
for a commercial bakery/restaurant in the mountains near Jacmel and for a 
school on La Gonave.

They may not be as wide-spread as they could be, but the technology is 
certainly in use.
