One of the main design elements will be a rooftop vegetable garden using captured rainwater
The use of captured rainwater
for irrigation combined with hardy plant species will save approximately 1.
Under these restrictions, any captured rainwater
is considered stolen from those who own the waterways into which that water would have flowed had it not been collected.
The project provided traffic mitigation alternatives, utilized advanced membrane waste water treatment, captured rainwater
for recycling, and installed a biomass (woodchip) boiler for base steam load.
Residents agree to hang laundry on a clothesline (the 32 units provide washers but not dryers) and irrigate vegetable gardens with captured rainwater
Her back yard is a vegetable garden and she has 16 fruits, much of the vegetation irrigated with captured rainwater
and water recycled from indoor use.
The JWU building has been designed to meet standards for certification that include quality of indoor environment, efficient use of water (in this case using captured rainwater
for landscape irrigation) and reduced energy usage.
The EPA will help with the design and specifications in Albuquerque for a rooftop vegetable garden, which would use captured rainwater
Water Efficiency - uses captured rainwater
to water specially selected drought- resistant landscaping; and installed low-flow fixtures with sensor-activated valves designed to reduce water usage by 36 percent compared to similar sized buildings.
In Albuquerque, the EPA will help with the specifications and design for a rooftop vegetable garden that will use captured rainwater
Contributing to the environmental pilot effort, the landscaping concept dramatically reduces the need for irrigation and recycles captured rainwater
Additionally, the Queens Botanical Garden in New York City demonstrated how graywater from sinks can be treated naturally outside and reused while captured rainwater
can supply decorative fountains and pools.
