Although rainwater harvesting has been practiced for thousands of years, recent concerns over water supplies and urban storm water runoff have prompted homeowners, businesses, and municipalities to consider using rainwater harvesting systems. By using harvested rainwater for purposes that don't require treated drinking water, like watering landscapes or washing cars, we reduce the demand on municipal potable water supplies and reduce the costs associated with potable water use, allowing the system to pay for itself over time.
The presenters for this audio conference are from the North Carolina Cooperative Extension and the North Carolina State University, Biological and Agricultural Engineering Department. They have been installing and examining the feasibility of using cisterns for rainwater harvesting and water supply for more than six years.
Learning Objectives
  • You will be able! to discuss storm water runoff and rainwater harvesting system basics.
  • You will be able to describe the proper siting, sizing, and installation of systems.
  • You will be able to review maintenance considerations to keep the system functioning at its best.
  • You will be able to explain web-based rainwater harvesting design model.

Who Should Attend

This audio conference is designed for engineers, construction and project managers, city administrators, public works and utilities directors, architects, presidents, vice presidents, environmental professionals, developers, planners and landscape architects.
