Connecting the Drops: Creating Abundance with Rainwater Harvesting
Tell a Friend About This EventTell a Friend
 

Climate change presents humankind with immense challenges, including how to adapt to water shortages in an abundant and resilient manner. Rainwater harvesting and reuse offers solutions for whatever our future holds! Too often, we let precious water drip off of our rooftops, driveways and streets and spill into gutters and storm drains where it rushes away loaded with all sorts of pollutants and pours directly into our much-diminished rivers. This webinar is eligible for 1 PCH CEU

Climate change presents humankind with immense challenges, including how to adapt to water shortages in an abundant and resilient manner. Rainwater harvesting and reuse offers solutions for whatever our future holds! Too often, we let precious water drip off of our rooftops, driveways and streets and spill into gutters and stormdrains where it rushes away loaded with all sorts of pollutants and pours directly into our much-diminished rivers. Jeremiah offers hope and resilience with examples from incredibly productive projects in areas that receive less than 12 inches of precipitation a year. These same solutions can be used in many regions to conserve our scarce freshwater resources. Jeremiah will review techniques including retaining water on the landscape using one rock dams and swales to channeling roof water to cisterns and planting beds. We may not be able to change the amount of precipitation we get, but we most certainly can change our drought mentality by focusing on the abundance of water we waste rather than the scarcity of water we wish we had.
