Rainwater Harvesting or Not

This has been a very dry summer. The rainwater tanks were often empty but at least when it rained we were able to collect water for later use. This summer, we worked on a number of projects in New York City Community Gardens which added to the overall number of gardens with rainwater capture systems as well as the number of gallons of water saved and diverted from the city's Combined Sewer System. Here are some photos:
