The Insider’s Guide to Rainwater Harvesting

New rainwater harvesting white paper outlines challenges, benefits, and techniques.

Dear Water Resources Management Professional,

Learn why rainwater harvesting is gaining popularity
With drought conditions in the west, stressed and degrading water infrastructure, and water utility bills rising across the country, harvesting rainwater is becoming a hot topic. Rainwater harvesting makes sense by utilizing rainwater where it falls, without transporting it via stormwater systems.

Water Efficiency magazine editor, Nancy Gross has collected multiple contributions from our expert writers at Forester Media on the topics of rainwater harvesting to bring you the latest applications of onsite rainwater capture and use.

This paper presents various  methods for what is better known as rainwater harvesting. Incorporating rainwater and stormwater best management practices (BMPs) illustrate how to avoid wasting water as a resource and how to contain and filter stormwater runoff pollution, keeping water in the watershed.

Find out why communities are supporting the rainwater harvesting movement
When you read Conserving Water With Rainwater Harvesting: Preventing Pollution With Green Infrastructure you will:

  • Discover the surprising abundance of rainwater escaping capture
  • Learn which rainwater harvesting systems are being used successfully for collection and storage
  • Find other uses for rainwater besides landscape watering
  • Understand how rainwater harvesting prevents pollution
  • Ensure you are aware of the regulations of rainwater harvesting

Just like the best time to plant an oak tree is 20 years ago and the second best time is today; now is the best time to take action and learn about rainwater harvesting

Discover the best management practices of rainwater harvesting
There was a time when we collected rainwater onsite, harvesting rainwater onsite for use watering gardens. But we got away from that.

When did we decide to get away from efficiently storing water onsite and begin instead using treated drinking water (potable) for uses that do not require water treated to potable standards?

How do you know what methods are right for your rainwater harvesting projects, among the number of solutions becoming available to you? Don’t let yourself languish in analysis paralysis.

The Rainwater Harvesting Renegade

Learn how a renegade resident of Tucson, AZ, reformed municipal rainwater collection policies

Sometimes it takes the vision of one individual to buck the system and implement changes. Brad Lancaster of Tuscon, AZ did just that. First around his home, then around his block. Within a few short years, this maverick rainwater harvesting advocate transformed his street. Neighbors joined in to lobby city officials for municipal water reform.

The results can be seen around the city of Tucson, and you can read about Lancaster and his neighbors. You don’t want to miss this story, so check out the white paper now!

    I am a civil engineer and I would like to know more how not to waste something as precious as rainwater esp. here in California.

  • Walter Brodtman.

    how many pgs is the rainwater harvesting paper you’re offering?

  • Al White.

    Harvesting/ storing any water is NOT an answer. The sequestration/ hoarding of water only exacerbates these exponentially increasing water shortages. The Earth, before humans, had its own, fairly well balanced naturally evolved “Water Cycle”. The human creature, with his insatiable greed for limitless growth and $profit over the last 200 years, has finally succeeded in destroying all of the natural cycles and systems that could have comfortably supported him to infinity. (Every new human body another 17 gallons of water plus untold trillions more gallons for his comfort/ recreation and living infrastructure. We are now insanely planning for 9 billion humans. INSANITY!! Good Luck, Al White

  • Especially in CA during the years of drought, I am surprised there weren’t more conversations and actions related to grey water systems. They are the norm in many parts of Europe as well as other countries.
