Find the books and classes you need to learn more about harvesting rainwater right here. If you have a special project or situation, please contact us directly and we’ll be happy to help. Books cover topics ranging from rainwater catchment systems used in dry areas and how these can be used to support a more verdant landscape to greywater guides that outline in step-by-step fashion how to take water that might otherwise be wasted, left to enter the municipal water system, and use it for irrigation. See our library to find out more about rain storage.
The practice of catching and reusing rainwater is by no means new. More than four thousand years ago, humans were harvesting rainwater to use for crops in the Middle East. Climate control was part of everyday life in Ancient Rome where rainwater was collected and allowed to evaporate beneath homes to cool them. Around the world, in fact, through history and still today, rainwater catchment was and is – in some areas – the only way of obtaining water for daily use. As energy and water become more precious over the next few decades, new ways of collecting, filtering and distributing this resource will be critical to the health and welfare of all.
RainHarvest Systems focuses its efforts on creating new and better rain harvesting techniques and devices and is deeply involved in educating both the public entity and private individual on options, barriers, legislation and the inevitable evolution and refinement of this crucial practice. We invite you to investigate here and to use our Resources page to find further information. You’ll find an overview, drought/precipitation maps, manuals, organizations, rainwater calculators and municipal programs, listed by region. We’ve provided links to centers and state organizations that have paved the way for better, easier rain harvesting. In addition, you’ll find videos that provide immediate access to the processes, techniques and variables involved. Finally, we’ve listed blogs that are great places to step into this green world of innovation and preservation of our most important natural resource.
