During heavy rains, our industrial parking lot would have six inch puddles. Our cement contractor, De Olivera Concrete removed approximately 1,000 feet of concrete, dug a 8 by 8 by 8 foot deep Catchment Basin, filled it with gravel, and installed a steel grate so rainwater could percolate back into the earth. This win, win situation helped the tenant and put much need rainwater back into our aquifer.
Architect Anders Nyquist from Sweden says it all. Conservation is key. Very effective and efficient use of energy and resources for sustainable living.
