Catching Water: Sneak preview.

Today is the first day of two water catchment tank workshops in my backyard. Mostly we will mix cement and set a 7 foot tall, 4 foot diameter metal culvert on its end in the cement. With some pipes mixed in for fun. For a diagram of what we are going to do, look at this older post, and for more information about improving our water resources, local watershed management, all here in Tucson, Watershed Management Group knows a thing or two. Here are the parts, pieces, and place.

Culvert, soon to be cistern.


What 1 ton of cement mix looks like next to 3 inch ABS pipes.

Location, location, location. In this case, right under the newly installed gutters seems to make sense.
