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.
