AGTM Laboratory Rainwater Harvesting Demonstration System

This system includes a 2.000 gallon metal cistern, first-flush cleaning system and a solar-powered submersible pump which conveys collected water to irrigate plants in the front of the AGTM lab facility. Water is drawn to cool welding metal coupons. The water is collected at the end of the lab session in a poly drum and later pumped back into the cistern for re-use.
