Rainwater Harvesting ... BSE-1846
Volume 2: Water-Harvesting Earthworks Brad Lancaster, 2008, 419 ppSelf Sufficiency, The continuation of the good work begun in volume 1, above. Earthworks are simple, inexpensive strategies and landforms that passively harvest free rainfall, water runoff, air conditioning condensate, and greywater within the soil. Integrated vegetation then pumps the water back out in the form of beauty, food, shelter, wildlife habitat, timber, and passive heating and cooling, while controlling erosion, increasing soil fertility, reducing downstream flooding, dropping utility costs, and improving water and air quality. NOTE: Greywater should be used for trees and shrubs, not vegetables. Laws regarding rainwater capture vary from state to state. Readers in colorado especially will need to work around applicable laws. APPROX WEIGHT: 2.58 lbs.
