Rainwater Harvesting (RWH), although not a new concept, has become increasingly practical in today's world as the availability of water sources dwindles and the costs of providing treated water for residential and commercial buildings has seen continued increases. The technology for the capture, storage and reuse of rainwater has also made significant advances and will continue to make progress moving forward. In the United States, recent periods of drought and shortages of water for both rural areas and large population areas have heightened public awareness towards all methods of water conservation. Therefore, rainwater harvesting is becoming increasingly popular, sensible and more cost effective.

The benefits and advantages of Rainwater Harvesting are numerous.
  • The water is free; the only cost is for collection, conveyance, filtration, storage and use of the system with minimal operation and maintenance. 
  • The end use of the harvested water is located close to the source, eliminating the need for complex and costly distributions systems.
  • Rainwater provides a water source when groundwater is unacceptable or unavailable, or it can augment limited groundwater supplies. 
  • The zero hardness of rainwater helps prevent scale on appliances, extending their use-life; rainwater eliminates the need for a water softener and the salts added during the softening process.
  • Rainwater is superior for plant watering. 
  • Reduced Demand on Water Supplies - RWH helps utilities reduce periodic demand stresses and delays expensive expansion of existing water treatment plants.
  • Runoff Volume Reduction - RWH reduces the volume of storm water which lessens the impact of local erosion, pollutant and hydraulic loads on storm sewers and can help engineers, designers & planners in their permitting efforts for areas with storm water concerns.
  • Rain water harvesting systems add value to any property.
  • Monetary Savings - RWH reduces consumers' utility bills, and for this reason alone it is sensible for consumers of all types, particularly businesses, places of mass assembly and large scale water users to move toward this practice.

Schools & Public Service Facilities
Farms, Animal Care & Agricultural Buildings
Garden Centers & Nurseries
Industrial Developments
Coliseums, Sports Domes & Places of Mass Assembly
Fire Stations and/or Fire Vulnerable Communities

Before planning to design and/or install a rainwater harvesting system, several factors should be taken into consideration. These factors include but are not limited to the following:
  • Rainfall Amount for the Local Area
  • Roof Area and Type of the Building
  • Available Space on the Lot and Type of Storage Desired (Above or Below Ground)
  • Water Consumption (household or business size and needs)
  • Intended use (potable, non-potable, irrigation, etc.)
  • Subsurface Conditions for Above or Below Ground Storage Tank
  • Height of the building and whether there heavy vegetation in the vicinity of the building which would result in heavy leaf and debris loading

SmartWater Solutions Group
Design & Guidance Services
In the United States and worldwide the technology for capture, conveyance, filtration, storage and use of rainwater has made significant advances in recent years and will continue to make progress moving forward. Smart Water Solutions team of professionals can provide simple residential or more complex commercial/industrial rainwater harvesting system configurations or design a system that best meets the needs of the project and achieves the best possible water quality.

Examples of some but not all of the critical questions one may ask themselves to ensure a proper designed rainwater harvesting system are as follows:
  • What is the average annual rainfall for the area?
  • For what purpose is the filtered rainwater desired to be re-used? Indoor versus Outdoor use can become a significant cost factor.
  • Are there local or regional permitting requirements with regards to stormwater runoff or surface discharge from the subject property?
  • Does the owner/designer prefer above ground or below ground storage of the rainwater? (Note: above ground storage is typically less expensive than below ground)
  • Is there heavy vegetation in the vicinity of the building which would result in heavy leaf and debris loading? Or is the building in an area where there will be minimal leaf and debris during the year?

At Smart Water Solutions Group we can assist you with your rainwater harvesting project by conducting one or several of the following tasks:
  • Perform a water audit of the entire property to advise the owner of various methods to conserve water
  • Investigate all the site specifics and considerations prior to beginning the system design
  • Determine the optimum system sizing and selection of the correct components adequate for the proposed water demand and intended use
  • If necessary, perform a subsurface investigation to identify soil, bedrock and/or shallow water table conditions which could significantly increase the cost if underground storage is being considered
  • Identify all underground or above ground utilities that may be disturbed during construction (many utilities are not marked within the property boundaries by local locating services unless specifically requested)
  • Prepare a brief report including system design layout and recommendations to achieve optimum system results for many years to come
  • Project management, assistance with procurement of components and strategic advice
  • System Installation oversight with a qualified individual to assist you or your contractor during the project
