Is one rain barrel not enough free water for you? If you're looking for a do-it-yourself rainwater system with increased capacity, no permits, and easy installation, this workshop is essential for you. A 275 gallon tank can water approximately 500 square feet of land per week, drastically reducing summertime water bills. Come learn how to retrofit two 275-gallon tanks into a rainwater system for your home or business.
This is a two-part series. Attend both classes and leave with the resources and know-how to retrofit tanks for your own rainwater harvesting system.
Part I: Tuesday, May 8th 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
This classroom session will cover the concepts, metrics, and mechanics of rainwater harvesting with tanks and general water conservation information.
Part II: Saturday, May 12th 9:00 am – 12:00 pm
This session will be hands-on with step-by-step installation of a retrofit system.
