Rainwater Harvesting Knowledge Exchange

The practice known as rainwater harvesting or roof-water harvesting is as old as time and as modern as today — as a new following of people from around the world are choosing to harvest rain to provide for their everyday needs and to help the planet by conserving water.

Harvested rainwater can be used to water your garden, wash your car and flush your toilet, thereby conserving the pipe-borne treated water supply from your water utility.

Falling rain can provide some of the cleanest naturally occurring water that is available anywhere — and is at risk only from airborne particles and man-made pollution. Additionally, rainwater that is captured, filtered and stored correctly can be a safe and economical answer to the plight of all who experience water woes and is also a great way to help the environment.
