Is rain water harvesting anything that could be considered in Ohio? Is there
too much rain on a regular basis for that to work? I have a long wide black
top driveway and under it is a drain to the street that needs to be replaced.
Estimates run over $4000 and it burns me up that I need to pay that much to get
rid of water run off.
I'm trying to get someone at Ohio State to call me and tell me about it. I've
googled it and see how it is used where rain water is too valuable to lose.
It is done in Ohio. All growers zoned as agriculture have ponds, either
natural or man made from which they pump for irrigation. Some do pump from
a river, but the laws restrict the amount they can pump out.
You could do the same if you have the room or need for a pond.
People here in Pennsylvania collect rain in rain barrels to use on
their gardens, etc. I know of one guy who uses it to fill his toilet
On another note, I got a chuckle out of your subject line as my last
name used to be Rainwater......
