Home / rainwater harvesting
Rainwater that falls on a rooftop is collected and conveyed into an above- or below-ground storage tank where it can be used for non-potable water uses and on-site stormwater disposal/infiltration.
Vegetated roofs are alternative roof surfaces that typically consist of waterproofing and drainage materials and an engineered growing media that is designed to support plant growth.
Discover the best practices for harvesting rainwater and understand its small and large scale practical uses.
Part of the reason for the absence of rain tanks in the Chesapeake Bay watershed is the lack of design specifications for them.
From a stormwater perspective, terrain matters a lot more than state boundaries. However, the bulk of stormwater research has taken place in only one terrain.
Roof runoff quality is fundamentally determined by the nature of the roof surface, which can be quire diverse.
