Why Harvest Rainwater?

Rainwater harvesting may sound like something from a quaint, simple gardening age gone by. But there’s never been a more important time to collect the rain.

Captured rain provides valuable benefits to landscapes, communities and the planet — not to mention your wallet. Collecting rainwater reduces municipal and well-water demand, helps control run-off and keeps plants healthy. From small-scale home systems to institutional total hydrology planning, Skywater’s rainwater collection strategies are a proven way to protect and sustain our precious environment.
