Modular Rainwater Harvesting Tank
It is becoming increasingly obvious to municipalities across the US that the cost of providing a usable water supply is increasing rapidly. Decaying infrastructure and storm water system pollution is not only contaminating ecosystems but this valuable source of water is literally going down the drain. RainHarvest Systems has solutions that can be tailored to your requirements for the complete control of water, our most precious resource.
Create the tank to suit your needs - The Atlantis Raintank modular design also allows the installation of tanks in any configuration, which can be ideal for narrow areas such as pathways or other difficult areas.
Unlimited Capacity - Raintanks can be constructed to hold any volume required.
Capture water from you garden or driveway - Atlantis tanks can capture water from roofs, gardens, lawns, paved areas and driveways increasing the capacity of water retention in your home.
Use Valuable Space - Atlantis tanks are installed underground preserving the look of your property.
Clean Water Storage - Atlantis tanks are pre filtered. Inside the tank water is kept at optimum conditions promoting aerobic activity within the tank. This prevents stagnation and growth of unhealthy anaerobic bacterias.
Create 'GARDEN RESERVOIRS' - Atlantis can create maintenance free tanks for your garden keeping it green all year round, and dramatically reduce the need for irrigation.
Manufactured using recycled materials, the Matrix® Tank Module is a lightweight structural component developed through years of research & development.

Owners and designers of new construction and major renovation projects can use the Atlantis D-Raintank products and qualify for points under the U.S. Green Building Councilís sustainable sites and water efficiency categories of its Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®)(1) Green Building Rating Systemô. The Atlantis D-Raintank can help achieve up to 11 LEED points.
Water Efficiency (WE) Credits
WE credit 1.1 & 1.2 - Reduce landscape irrigation by 50% / No Potable water used for landscape irrigation
The Atlantis D-Raintank can easily be made into an underground cistern by utilizing a PVC liner. By using a liner the RainTank becomes a sealed system that can collect and store filtered rainwater from roofs and parking lots for re-use. A pump can easily be added to the system in order to utilize the stored water for irrigation in order to offset or eliminate the irrigation systems reliance on a municipal water source.
LEED Credits for Water Efficiency (WE)
WE Credit 1.1: Water Efficient Landscaping (Reduce by 50%)
WE Credit 1.2: Water Efficient Landscaping (No Potable Water Use or No Irrigation)
Intent: Limit or eliminate (50%) or eliminate (100%) the use of potable water, or other natural surface or subsurface water resources available on or near the project site, for landscape irrigation. Requirements for Credit 1.1: Reduce potable water consumption for irrigation by 50%from a calculated mid-summer baseline case. Reductions shall be attributed to any combination of the following items: plant species factor, irrigation efficiency, use of captured rainwater, use of recycled wastewater, use of water treated and conveyed by a public agency specifically for nonpotable uses. Requirements for Credit 1.2: Achieve WE Credit 1.1 AND use only captured rainwater, recycled wastewater, recycled greywater, or water treated and conveyed by a public agency specifically for nonpotable uses for irrigation OR install landscaping that does not require permanent irrigation systems.

WE Credit 2 - Innovative Wastewater Technologies (Option 1)
The Atlantis D-Raintank can easily be converted into a cistern using a PVC liner. By using this cistern, in conjunction with proper filtration and purification equipment, 50% of sewage water usage can easily be off-set when the system has been properly sized.
LEED Credits for Water Efficiency (WE)
WE Credit 2: Innovative Wastewater Technologies
Intent: Reduce generation of wastewater and potable water demand, while increasing the local aquifer recharge. Requirements: Option-1: Reduce potable water use for building sewage conveyance by 50%through the use of water-conserving fixtures (water closets, urinals) or nonpotable water (captured rainwater, recycled greywater, and onsite or municipally treated wastewater).

WE Credit 3 - Water Use Reduction (20% & 30%)
The Atlantis D-Raintank can easily be incorporated into a new construction design to meet the LEED WE credits 3.1 and 3.2. Both of these credits have the same intent: to reduce the burden on municipal water supply and wastewater systems by maximizing water efficiency within buildings. Whether the aim is a 20 percent or a 30 percent reduction of water use, the Atlantis D-Raintank can be used to collect and store rainwater and greywater in order to meet the objective. It is just a matter of properly sizing the system - which we are happy to do for you.
LEED Credits for Water Efficiency (WE)
WE Credit 3.1: Water Use Reduction (20% Reduction)
WE Credit 3.2: Water Use Reduction (30% Reduction)
Intent: Maximize water efficiency within buildings to reduce the burden on municipal water supply and wastewater systems. Requirements: Employ strategies that, in aggregate, use 20% (Credit 3.1) or 30% (Credit 3.2) less water than the water use baseline calculated for the building (not including irrigation) after meeting the Energy Policy Act of 1992 fixture performance requirements. Calculations are based on estimated occupant usage and shall include only the following fixtures (as applicable to the building): water closets, urinals, lavatory faucets, showers and kitchen sinks.

Sustainable Sites (SS) Credits
SS Credit 5.1(Option 2)& 5.2 - Protect or Restore Habitat & Maximize open Space
The Atlantis D-Raintanks enormous void space percentage, 95%, enables the ability to create a larger subterranean cavity while utilizing less space. The result is a reduction in excavation and land clearing requirements. This coupled with the immense strength and structural integrity of the system aids in the promotion of improved open space. The area above the RainTank storage can be used for a multitude of applications. The space can be used for anything from athletic fields and children's play areas to a parking lot designed to support a heavy load.
LEED Credits for Sustainable Sites (SS)
SS Credit 5.1: Protect or Restore Habitat (Option 2)
Intent: To conserve existing natural areas and restore damaged areas to provide habitat and promote biodiversity. Requirements for Credit 5.1: See LEED for New Construction version 2.2 Page 11
SS Credit 5.2: Maximize Open Space
Intent: To promote biodiversity by providing a high ratio of open space to development footprint. Requirements for Credit 1.2: See LEED for New Construction version 2.2 Page 13 Source: U.S. Green Building Council, November, 2007
SS Credit 6.1 & 6.2 - Stormwater Quantity & Quality Control
Environmental concerns have changed the management of stormwater runoff. When stormwater runs directly into sewer systems, it can result in either groundwater contamination or overloading of stormwater infrastructure. To address these problems, many communities now require a specific retention time before allowing stormwater to run into the drainage system. The Atlantis D-Raintank is specifically designed to hold and then infiltrate water back into the groundwater table when used with a geotextile fabric. When the system is coupled with the our pre-filtration systems the Atlantis system can achieve the SS 6.2 credit as well by removing 80% of the total suspended solids.
LEED Category: Sustainable Sites (SS)
SS Credit 6.1 Stormwater Design: Quantity Control
Intent: Limit disruption of natural water hydrology by reducing impervious cover, increasing onsite infiltration, reducing or eliminating pollution from stormwater runoff, and eliminating contaminants. Requirements: See LEED for New Construction Version 2.2, page 21.
SS Credit 6.2 Stormwater Design: Quality Control
Intent: Limit disruption and pollution of natural water flows by managing stormwater runoff. Requirements: See LEED for New Construction Version 2.2, page 22. Source: U.S. Green Building Council, November, 2007
