Glossary 

 

Rainwater harvesting systems can be as simple as a rain barrel for garden irrigation at the end of a downspout, or as complex as a domestic potable system or a multiple end-use system at a large corporate campus.

Rainwater harvesting is practical only when the volume and frequency of rainfall and size of the catchment surface can generate sufficient water for the intended purpose.

From a financial perspective, the installation and maintenance costs of a rainwater harvesting system for potable water cannot compete with water supplied by a central utility, but is often cost-competitive with installation of a well in rural settings. 

Rainwater harvesting is practical for homeowners in the DFW area who are using the water for landscaping irrigation. With adequate collection and storage capacity, it is an answer to water conservation for pools. It is not practical for those who supply their own potable water.
