Rainwater Harvesting Class at Palo Alto College!

Palo Alto College is proud to host a two-day course in
Rainwater Harvesting on April 13th-14th, 2012.  

"Where there is no surface water, or where groundwater is deep or inaccessible due to hard ground conditions, or where it is too salty, acidic or otherwise unpleasant or unfit to drink, another source
must be sought. In areas which have regular rainfall the most appropriate alternative is the collection of rainwater, called ‘rainwater harvesting’. Falling rain can provide some of the cleanest naturally occurring water that is available anywhere." -
