One inch of rainfall on a 2,000-square-foot house yields approximately 1,240 gallons of water. In New England that means you could be collecting and using up to 26,000 gallons of free water during the growing season!
Increased consumption of limited water supplies and more extreme weather patterns are making watering bans a common occurrence and flooding a familiar hazard. Rainwater harvesting can help to reduce the harmful effects of droughts and floods by recycling the water that falls on your property.
What is rainwater harvesting?
Rainwater harvesting is the collection, storage, and re-use of rainwater from rooftops or other above ground surfaces. Rainwater harvesting is also known as rainwater collection, rainwater catchment, or rainwater capture.
