Strategies for Rainwater Harvesting & Stormwater Management at Your Home

April Showers
Strategies for Rainwater Harvesting & Stormwater Management at Your Home
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

April is known for ushering in the rainy season.

The old saying "April showers bring May flowers" is especially true for New Orleanians. As we enjoy a beautiful spring in our city, with occasionally abundant rain and a mind toward sustainability, it is important to think about our watersheds and finding ways to utilize what we normally consider as waste water.

Join us this month as our panelists discuss local issues with water catchment and management, as well as highly informative presentations on alternatives such as rain barrels, water cisterns,
bioswales and creative rain gardening.
Panelists include engineer Joe Evans, of sustainable design firm FutureProof,
Demetria Christo, co-founder of EcoUrban Sustainable Landscaping,
and Global Green's Raymond Breaux, program manager, Build It Back Green.
Please join us for refreshments and a topical, informative discussion.

Rainwater tanks said...

Storing rainwater in water tanks seems to be a nice idea and It’s also nice to see some good measures are being taken for encouraging the installation of water harvesting systems.
