Rainwater Collection Basics
March 11 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm$40.00
Rainwater harvesting is a popular alternative for homeowners and gardeners who want to become more self-sufficient by collecting rainwater while reducing water bills. Rainwater can be used to water gardens and for emergency water supply. In this class we discuss the fundamentals of designing a domestic rainwater harvesting system, how to optimize capture and usage, filtration and distribution. Graywater systems are also discussed.
There will be a lunch break followed by a field trip to visit two nearby residential rainwater harvesting system projects.
