Let's catch rainwater! During our single rain even this year, up to 2-3" fell on parts of San Diego County. That equates to 1200-1800 gallons of rainwater off of only a 1000 square foot roof! 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 1320 gallon rainwater harvesting tank to help with irrigation during the dry season. With an already existing laundry greywater system and a well designed edible garden, this is a great place to see how an integrated system of strategies can achieve amazing abundance with little to no input of municipal water.
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 in Oceanside. Exact address will be emailed to all registered participants.
