      DeCook, K. James (Kenneth James),1925-; Water Resources Research Center (Office of Arid Lands Studies, University of Arizona (Tucson, AZ), 1983-09)
      Introduction: This report deals with the potential harvesting of rainfall and runoff in the Tucson urban area, as distinguished from the rural (farmland) setting that is discussed separately. The principal differences are that 1) rainfall catchment surfaces like rooftops and pavement already exist in the urban area, and 2) harvested rainwater in the urbanized area can be put to a variety of beneficial uses.
