Friday, March 30th - 1:30 - 2:30 PM

Course Description:

Explore the myriad of techniques to harvest rainwater for your landscape (and beyond), including passive and active systems. In this course, we will pictorially look at systems ranging from simple earth works to direct earth-contacted rainwater (stormwater), to subsurface infiltration galleries and retention systems. We will extensively look at more elaborate and intensive detention systems, both above and below ground. We will explore gravity vs. pump-assisted landscape systems and consider suitability for domestic usage. Course will also include source, sizing, filtering, storing and using.
