Rainwater catchment system

IREI freshwater resources survey 2009

This picture was taken on an outer island. It shows the three key components of a  rainwater catchment system as used in the FSM. The roof acts as catchment that captures the rainwater, gutters provide the transfer mechanism, and the tank serves as storage. The green plastic tank looks new and very nice, but there are still some potential problems with this system. Do you notice anything that could be improved?
