Stormwater Retention for Irrigation Re-use and Fire Suppression

This mountain community experiences periodic heavy rains and snowfall yet the rocky and steep terrain does not support large underground aquifers or streams. Water well production is often poor and water is commonly trucked in by tankers and stored in unsightly above ground tanks next to attractive residences. A 5,000 gallon RainSpace Retention Chamber was installed to store stormwater run-off and roof-top rainfall for on-site irrigation. The esthetic environment was a significant consideration for the owner who did not want unsightly above ground tanks marring the landscape and garden that is over the RainSpace. The installation was done personally by the owner, working with a landscape contractor.
