“Seattle is a progressive city where rainwater collection is becoming mainstream – whether it be small residential supplementary systems or large scale commercial systems. All have a positive impact on storm water management and I am proud to be a part of the process. I would like to thank all my customers, past, present, and future for their commitment to helping our region’s environment.”, Ken Blair, president, RainBank Rainwater Collection Systems.
