    Super summary of your thriving water conservation and awareness efforts. It’s always a joy to run into you online or in person!

    I am thrilled to see the interest in water management. I would really encourage development of rainwater harvesting…the key is designing systems that have adequate storage. I don’t see this as a pure water source for 100% of landscaping needs, but a significant source of supplemental water for all landscaping applications from residential through large landscaped areas. Even climates that have sparse rainfall, say even 7 inches per year, can benefit from this strategy.

    While my practice focuses more directly on the water supply side of the equation, I obviously have a vested interest in water conservation practices – interestingly, rainwater harvesting straddles both of these sub-disciplines.
