About The Event
Turn water scarcity into water abundance!
This course teaches you how to conceptualize, design, and implement sustainable water-harvesting systems for your home, landscape, and community.
Rainwater is an amazing free resource. It's more beneficial to plants than municipally supplied water and it can help:
reduce storm-water runoff
stop groundwater depletion
Harvesting rainwater can also help you become more self-reliant with water and lower your carbon footprint.
The goal of this water catchment course is for you to create an integrated, multi-functional water harvesting plan specific to your site and needs.
Define key rainwater harvesting concepts, terms, and principles
Assess a site for rainwater harvesting potential and water uses
Make strategic decisions about what features and systems to use for a site
Design a conceptual integrated rainwater harvesting plan for a site
Refine a conceptual rainwater harvesting plan with relevant systems details
