What is Rainwater Harvesting?
Rainwater harvesting is the collection of rainwater from impervious surfaces to be used at a later time. In most cases, rainwater harvesting works by collecting rainwater that runs off of the roof of a building and then storing it inside of a tank or cistern; however, rainwater can also be collected from other surfaces, such as driveways, roads, and land surfaces.
Rainwater that has been harvested and stored can be used at a later time for anything from landscape irrigation to potable and non-potable indoor uses, helping to reduce the amount of drinking water consumption by up to 50%. These common uses of rainwater harvesting are particularly ideal in the event that no other water source is available or if the water that is available is of poor quality or limited supply.
Benefits of Rainwater Harvesting
Rainwater harvesting can be beneficial in both urban areas, like Vancouver and Coquitlam, and rural areas, like Chilliwack and Langley, because it offers superior water quality and helps reduce the use of and dependence on municipally treated water. Since rainwater is free from salts, minerals, and other natural and man-made contaminants, it offers a higher level of purity and softness than treated water. Rainwater harvesting is also a valuable water conservation tool that helps reduce the amount of water being treated and delivered by the municipality.
Rainwater Harvesting System Design
Rainwater harvesting system designs can range from simple ideas, such as setting up a rain barrel underneath a gutter downspout, to complex systems, such as supplying commercial or residential buildings with potable water. While some of the simpler rainwater harvesting system designs may not require much planning, complex systems need to account for a range of different factors (local rainfall quantities, storage volume options, roof area availability, etc.) to ensure that the rainwater collection system will work as efficiently and effectively as possible.
