The ARCSA (American Rainwater Catchment Systems Association) recently published a press release demonstrating their concern for the quality of America’s drinking water. A recent contamination of West Virginia’s water supply demonstrated the vulnerability of America’s water supply and the need for creating safe, decentralized water supplies throughout the country. With this main goal in mind, ARCSA strongly supports rainwater harvesting to help increase the availability of fresh drinking water and help solve energy challenges throughout the country.
Throughout the attached press release, ARCSA describes the benefits of a rainwater harvesting system both for residential and commercial uses. Currently, our water is subject to over 200 potential contaminants. Some of these contaminants may be in such small traces that they go unnoticed by EPA Drinking Water standards. This means, the water you’re currently consuming may be full of a variety of potential contaminants. For this reason and many more, there has been a resurgence in rainwater harvesting popularity.
