Rainwater Harvesting

HCC students have often worked on ideas for rainwater harvesting, and this is now becoming a reality. Storage tanks are being set up around campus to capture rainwater, which will then be used throughout campus for the landscape as well as in HCC's organic garden. This small investment will save the college approximately $6,100 a year. Even where rainwater is not scarce, harvesting rainwater at home is an easy way to keep your garden green without impacting public resources.
