2016 Was a Good Year for Rainwater Systems

Seattle’s RainBank Rainwater Systems would like to thank our customers and partners for their support this past year.

It has been our pleasure to be part of so many quality projects, residential and commercial, throughout the Pacific NorthWest.

Closing this exciting year we have developed new approaches in design and expansion of our services. Always keeping with our progressive approach, we have gained new alliances within the industry so we may better serve our customers. We are proud to have introduced competition in the steel water tank market, not only in Seattle but in eight Western States with our distributorship of Contain Water Systems Inc. 

RainBank Rainwater Systems has become a Living Building Challenge certified designer/ builder of rainwater collection systems with the construction of Heron Hall, the home of Jason McLennan, CEO of the Living Building Challenge, and one of the world’s greenest homes.

Our very own Chad Lindsly has volunteered to be a co -ARCSA NW regional representative; which means he will serve on a few ARCSA committees in 2017. 

We look forward to another great year in serving our customers and communities.

Seattle based RainBank Rainwater Systems seized the opportunity to remain up to date on the latest news, trends, and information on Rainwater Collection at the recent ARCSA (American Rainwater Catchment Systems Association) conference in Las Vegas.

It has been a progressive year for ARCSA with the alignment of Texas Rainwater Catchment Association (TRCA) and American Rainwater Catchment Association (ARCSA). ARCSA became a 501C (6) and (3) nonprofit organization. The new 2016 ARCSA Rainwater Harvesting Manual now includes the ARCSA/ASPE/ ANSI 63 & 78 standards. The inclusion of CANARM, our neighbors to the North, enhances the ARCSA mission statement in promotion of Rainwater Collection. Our continued movement forward with the United Association of Plumbers only strengthens ARCSA as a viable trade organization, giving us a voice in future legislation.

A number of quality speakers gave their time to inform and educate the membership on topics ranging in “Roofing Materials Assessments Updates”, by University of Washington’s Lisa Rozmyn; “Emerging Regulatory Trends in Rainwater Harvesting”,  by Kevin Wong;  “EPA WaterSense Professional Training”, by Pamela Berstler; and other topics. The discussion “Nevada Water Conservation”, by Doug Bennett should be a model of water conservation throughout the US and Canada.
