Learn how RainWise cisterns are a solution to combat pollution!
RainWise, a City of Seattle and King County partnership offers rebates for rain gardens and cisterns on private property. These installations capture water that falls on roofs and keeps it out of sewer pipes during big rain storms. Cisterns are also a great source for summer watering!
Over 2,200 property owners have installed RainWise rain gardens and cisterns and are helping to keep our waterways clean. Rain gardens require specific property conditions to work. When a property is too steep, too small, or has insufficient drainage for a rain garden, cisterns can be a great solution.
In this webinar, you will learn about cisterns, which are large above-ground containers used to collect roof water. You’ll also get to hear about their benefits in Seattle, specifically how they help reduce combined sewer overflows and how they can be used for summer landscape irrigation.
You will listen to a short presentation on cisterns and other rainwater harvesting methods, learn what the RainWise program is all about, along with resources for those not eligible for RainWise, hear from a RainWise homeowner and their cistern installation, and have a chance to ask questions to water experts from RainWise.
