Tips on how to harvest rainwater

-A A +A
By Susan Brown, County Extension

Rainwater harvesting is the idea of capturing stormwater runoff, often from rooftops, and storing the water for later use. When we have heavy rains such as with Hurricane Irene, most of that water is diverted into stormwater drains or ditches and is carried away before it penetrates the ground. Rain barrels or more complex cisterns can be installed to capture runoff and provide water for plants during drier periods. Increasing development along with the drought has increased the demand on municipal water supplies.
