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 storage tank 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 looking for practical instruction in designing and building a rainwater catchment system.
