Event Information

Rainwater Harvesting for the Homeowner:

Rain barrels capture water from a roof through the downspouts of your eaves troughs and hold it for later use such as on lawns, gardens or indoor plants. Collecting roof runoff in rain barrels or cisterns reduces the amount of water that flows off your property, an important adaptation to our changing climate. The average roof in the CRD can collect 272 litres of rain (60 gallons) on each nine square metres (about 100 square feet) for every 25 mm (one inch) of rain. This equals hundreds of litres of free water you can use in your garden every year, for only a small investment of time and materials. Rainwater harvesting has multiple environmental benefits, it saves our drinking water, reduces pressure on the aging storm drain system, is healthy for many plants and protects fish and aquatic habitat! Attend our webinar and learn from local expert Gord Baird who has an American Rainwater Catchment Systems Association Designer & Installer Certification and lives locally, harvesting our west coast rain.
