Rainwater Catchment System Design

Interested in capturing and storing rainwater for irrigation? Partici­pants will learn about rainwater catchment system components, beneficial uses, appropriate collection surfaces, pre-storage filtration, and tank storage options. Bring a calculator and your project ideas, including a site plan showing roof(s), possible tank locations and use areas (e.g. garden or landscape plants). Property elevation changes and roof angles are also helpful. Our discussion will also include cost-effective ways to reduce run-off, pros and cons of different designs, and project examples.

For anyone interested in capturing and using rainwater at home looking for practical instruction for designing and building your own water catchment system.
