Water harvesting
article description
Even without the reinforcement of personal experience, logic tells us that the collection, storage, and use of rainwater should be an important component of any community water conservation strategy. Our experience on Thetis Island, B.C., suggests that rainwater harvesting on a personal basis may actually be the best place to start building community commitment to this sphere of environmental stewardship.
