Seeking ways to reduce the effects of the Climate Crisis by making better use of our resources
NEW COMMON HOUSE CISTERN 2022
In late September 2022, the Climate Mitigation Group, in collaboration with the Buildings, Grounds, and Security Team completed the tank installation phase of a project the Group conceived and researched for the purpose of increasing water capture from the common house roof. Two 1000-gallon cisterns were previously installed to harvest water from the common house south roof in 2017. The new 500-gallon tank adds 25% storage capacity to the overall system. Estrada Development LLC came in mid-October to gutter and downspout runoff from the north roof to the cisterns and plumb the receiving tank.
Thanks to Jill, Karen, Mary, along with the rest of the Climate Mitigation Group, Frank of the Buildings, Grounds, and Security Team, and our groundskeeper Jimmy.
