Rainwater Collection for the Homeowner Turned Water Warrior
November 5, 2016 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm$85.00
Rainwater harvesting is a popular alternative for homeowners and gardeners who want to become more self-sufficient by collecting rainwater while reducing their water bills. Rainwater can be used to water gardens and for emergency water supply. In this class we will discuss the fundamentals of designing a domestic rainwater harvesting system, how to optimize capture and usage, filtration and distribution. Greywater systems will also be discussed.
There will be a lunch break followed by a field trip to visit two nearby residential rainwater harvesting system projects.
