UNTAPPED POTENTIAL FOR RAINWATER HARVESTING: “We need to elevate the role of stormwater capture across the country as part of the toolbox to help alleviate the increasing stress in our water supplies,” stated Bruk Berhanu, Ph.D., a senior researcher for the Pacific Institute

“The results of our analysis clearly show that there’s a vast opportunity to support water resilience in communities by implementing more stormwater capture to supplement water supplies and help offset the negative impacts of urban stormwater runoff,” said Bruk Berhanu. “The next steps would be for communities to build on these results and to determine how much stormwater capture is feasible for them. That involves looking at local context and considering factors such as potential impacts on downstream water users.”
