What is Rainwater Harvesting?

Rainwater Harvesting is the practice of collecting and storing rainwater for future use. These collection & storage systems can range from simple rain barrels to more elaborate structures with pumps, tanks, and water treatment/filtration systems.

What Can Rainwater Be Used For?


  • Watering lawns, plants and gardens. 
  • Car and home washing
  • Laundry and toilet flushing

Potable- fit for human consumption
(This water must be properly treated to ensure it is safe) 

  • Drinking and cooking
  • Washing fresh vegetables and food
  • Showering and bathing

Community Benefits of Rainwater Collection:

  • reduces the demand on municipal and well water supplies during times of peak demand and when water restrictions are in place. 
  • reduces erosion, property flooding, and contamination by reducing the majority of runoff from businesses and homes. 
  • reduces the amount of water entering stormwater systems which in turn helps to protect our watersheds, streams, creeks and the nearshore environments.
