UNDERSTANDING RAINWATER HARVESTING
Stormwater Management Done Right
1. Rooftop Rainwater Runoff. We have detailed calculations to understand how much runoff we can predict for your building over a one year period.
2. Parking lots experiece a rainwater runoff rate of 95%. With proper large particle filtration this water can be recaptured.
3. Landscaped area experience rainwater at different rates. Clay soils can expect a runoff rate of 35%
1. Irrigation: Landscaping will often have the greatest water demand. Landscaping choices can greatly impact that demand. The use of drought-tolerant plants, efficient irrigation practices, and implementation of rain gardens or dry creeks can greatly impact your ROI.
2. Non-potable Water: Filtration systems are required for indoor non-potable water. The economics of whether or not to pursue indoor non-potable water use needs to be assessed on a project by project based on your ROI objectives.
