Rainwater Tank Installation Workshop

  • Bayside Community Center 6882 Linda Vista Road San Diego, CA, 92111 United States (map)

Let's catch rainwater!  “What rain?!” you say? Even in an inch, 600 gallons are rushing off a 1000 square foot roof. Be prepared this winter, and get yourself some significant storage to account for the dry times. 

Between $400 in rebates from City of San Diego and $350 in rebates from Metropolitan Water District, it's easier than ever to justify large water storage.  

In this hands-on workshop participants will learn the fundamentals of active rainwater harvesting systems.  By the end of the workshop we will have installed a 1000 gallon rainwater harvesting tank for a fantastic Community Garden.  

Topics to include:

  • Wet and dry systems

  • Calculating potential rainwater collection

  • Different types of tanks and cisterns

  • Prefiltering rainwater

  • Best management practices

  • Getting the most out of a gravity fed system

This workshop will be held at Bayside Community Center.  

We will have coffee/tea and snacks for participants!
