Rainwater Harvesting


About

A rainwater harvesting system captures stormwater runoff, often from a rooftop, and stores the water for later use. By using harvested rainwater for purposes that don’t require treated drinking water, we reduce the demand on municipal water supplies and increase the sustainability of drinking water supplies.
