Capturing rainwater is also another great way to use available water more efficiently. Currently most rainwater runs off your roof, into a storm drain, and out into a stream or river on its way to the ocean. Capturing rainwater and using it, is using water more efficiently! Rainwater is pure and drinkable if you can catch it before it hits your roof. Once it comes in contact with your roof it can pick up unwanted sediment, bacteria, and/or virus. Rainwater can be treated to non-potable or potable standards basically using the same capabilities used at the MRWPCA but on a residential scale. The city of Atlanta recently created a rainwater harvesting ordinance allowing residences to create potable water, but other municipalities may not. Locally our Garden Solutions Landscaping rainwater installations support non-potable irrigation requirements. Call us today for a free consultation!
