Rainwater Harvesting Best Practices Guidebook

Rainwater Harvesting Archive2012Nov

As part of the Regional District of Nanaimo’s Green Building Series, the RDN has published a how-to document laying out all aspects to help anyone understand rainwater harvesting systems and how they are approved within the RDN. We don’t mean to brag (well maybe we do), but we were part of the team that wrote this document and we want to help you design and install your very own rainwater harvesting system!

Inside you’ll find great information including:

  • A “Quick Self-Assessment: Is rainwater harvesting right for you?”
  • The difference between “Non-Potable (Outdoor Use)”, “Non-Potable (Indoor Use)”, & “Potable” Rainwater Harvesting Systems
  • How to calculate “Water Supply, Demand & Storage Requirements” 

… & so much more!
