Harvesting Rainwater for Your Outdoor Water Needs

  • Barnstable Land Trust 1540 Main Street West Barnstable, MA United States (map)

Jeff Adams, originally from Falmouth but now practicing landscape design in Utah, is joining us for an interactive presentation on the fundamentals of water harvesting, including techniques to mitigate stormwater runoff issues, decreasing the use of drinking quality water for outdoor irrigation needs, and providing a supplemental water source. Techniques discussed will include water harvesting landscape features such as rain gardens and swales and roof water catchment fundamentals for tank and barrel systems.

Basic calculations will be covered for determining how much water you can potentially harvest. Examples of water harvesting projects and programs from around the country will be highlighted.
