Rainwater Harvesting Project


In mid- September the Bronx River Alliance Conservation Crew along with two Wildcat Interns placed a rainwater harvesting system. This system consists of barrels that will collect and provide water for the NYCHA Bronx River Houses senior citizen garden. The water that is harvested from the rainfall will flow through gutters and collect into barrels. The water is then used to maintain a vegetable garden.
