Water Harvesting Demonstration for the Water Resources Research Center

Two rainwater harvesting tanks with a total capacity of 577 gallons, concrete pads, gutters and down spouts were installed at the front of the Water Resources Research Center building on Campbell Ave. Low water use plants replaced high water use plantings and granite mulch was added. Signage at the entry door of the WRRC provides basic information on rainwater harvesting, native plants and urban watersheds. The tanks have filled up many times with rainfall events and are providing water for the surrounding planting beds.
