Rainwater Collection is Ramping Up

In a recent article for Forester Network, about the growing rainwater collection industry, ARCSA president David Crawford says, “The field is really ramping up…”

The article goes on to explain, “There are a variety of methods of collecting rainwater – rain barrels, aboveground or underground cisterns, and other collection devices. Such harvested rainwater is frequently used for irrigation, but can also be a source of water for flushing toilets, washing vehicles, and, in some cases, for drinking water.”

Starting off the year by hitting the ground running, RainBank Rainwater Systems of Seattle is currently designing and building systems from Portland, Oregon to Whatcom County, Washington.

As the industry grows beyond a small niche market and becomes mainstream, RainBank has met the call for new steel water tank options in the Washington commercial and residential market with Contain Water Systems Inc – which carry a 20 year, industry high, warranty.
