The Rainwater Harvesting Series consists of three stand-alone sessions: you can register for a single session or receive a discounted rate if you register for the entire series.
2017 Topic: Sustainable Applications
Sustainable practices consider water as a resource and not waste, with a finite amount available to us. Uses for harvested rainwater such as irrigation, flushing, and laundry help to reduce the demand on treated water sources. Managing rainwater at its source – where it contacts the earth or structures such as buildings and pavement – protects the environment from floods, helps to introduce water into the soil and ground water supply, and can reduce pollution. Best practices in the design and implementation of rainwater systems at all scales are presented and discussed, with examples from the surrounding region.
