Rainwater Harvesting is an innovative alternative water supply approach anyone can use.  Rainwater harvesting captures, diverts and stores rainwater for use later.   Capturing rainwater for use in landscape makes an efficient use of a valuable resource therefore, reducing water bills, water demand run off, erosion and contamination of surface water.

In many communities, 30 to 50 percent of the total water used is for landscape irrigation.  Rainwater Harvesting can also help to prevent flooding and erosion, turning storm water problems into water supply assets by slowing runoff and allowing it to soak into the ground.  Reducing run-off also helps to reduce the contamination of surface water with sediments, fertilizers, and pesticides in rainfall run-off.
