Expert Answer:

Water harvesting structures are mostly crescent shaped earthen embankments or sometimes low straight concrete and rubble check dams. These structures are filled by the rains and remain available for use generally throughout the year.

The formation of water harvesting structures that hold the surface water is helpful in maintaining the level of ground water.
