Rainwater Harvesting for Drylands and Beyond
The award-winning Rainwater Harvesting for Drylands and Beyond is the first volume of a three-volume guide on how to conceptualize, design and implement sustainable water-harvesting systems for your home, landscape and community. This book enables you to assess your on-site resources, gives you a diverse array of strategies to maximize their potential, and empowers you with guiding principles to create an integrated, multi-functional water-harvesting plan specific to your site and needs. This revised and expanded second edition increases potential on-site harvests with more integrated tools and strategies for solar design, understanding your water/energy/carbon connections, water/erosion flow patterns and their water-harvesting response, and updated illustrations to show you how to do it all.
