As the precious scarce resource, how to make comprehensive use of water resources to achieve environmental protection and energy conservation is a problem that all countries have to face. The increasing demand of water used for daily use will have a significant role for protection of water resources in water conservation and comprehensive utilization of water resources during design of water supply and drainage. Taking the comprehensive utilization of various water bodies in Chinese building design as an example, this paper expounds the utilization of water bodies and the collection, purification and storage and utilization of rainwater in water supply and drainage design, providing constructive methods and suggestions for the comprehensive utilization, protection and sustainable management of water resources.
