Austin Rainwater Harvesting Interview Segment on CBS

Christian Flores from CBS Austin stopped by our office for a rainwater harvesting story he was working on. He got a chance to ask me many questions about rainwater harvesting and specifically about the practice here in Austin. I really tried to make the point that it is always the best time to think about installing a rainwater harvesting system, no matter if we are in drought conditions or if rainfall has been abundant. For Austin Water customers especially since the City of Austin offers a $5000 rainwater harvesting system rebate.

While I didn’t get too much camera time, one of our wonderful rainwater harvesting system clients did.  He discussed the benefits of rainwater harvesting from his own experience.  I think that is better than hearing it from me.
