Rainwater Harvesting in Tanks

What better time than now it is to start harvesting and storing rainwater. The City of San Diego is giving away rebates of $1 per gallon of water storage capacity (up 400 gallons or $400).  This means that you can almost install a 500 gallon tank for free!  In this hands-on workshop participants will learn the fundamentals of active rainwater harvesting systems.  By the end of the workshop we will have installed a rainwater harvesting tank to help with irrigation during the dry season. Everyone will come away with the knowledge and understanding to start planning their own systems..

Topics to include:

  • Wet and dry systems
  • Calculating potential rainwater collection
  • Different types of tanks and cisterns
  • Prefiltering rainwater using rainheads and first flush devices
  • Best management practices
  • Getting the most out of a gravity fed system
This workshop will be held in Kensington.  Exact address will be emailed to all registered participants.
