I just saw an episode of 'This New House' and will be putting the link in my "link file" as a resource to share with folks who ask about rainwater catchment, since so many homes on the Big Island use catchment systems. There's even a close look at a UV filtration system.

If you'd like to check it out, here's the link: This New House: Rainwater Harvesting

(This episode also explains how to earn LEED certification points and tours an urban garden!)

At my university, weʻve had a few buildings finished in the last 5 years that are LEED certified silver and gold. One of them collects rainwater in pillars out front to water plants around campus. pretty cool!
