    1. 1. Urban Rainwater Catchment Native Buffalo Grass, 6” tall max
    2. 2. Mission● Build a healthy, sustainable New Orleans, one yard at a time.
    3. 3. Nola Rainwater Harvest:● Bioretention Areas● Cisterns● Anatomy of a Rain Barrel● Why rainwater harvest is important
    4. 4. Why rainwater harvest in NOLA?● NOLA is the third rainiest city in the 48 contiguous states ● 65 inches of rain/year ● Our rain comes down all at once ● Water is a universal solvent, transporting contaminants to Lake Pontchartrain + wetlands
    5. 5. BIO RETENTION Results:Retention: ● ● Reduced need for irrigation Less water into Storm System● Collects runoff ● Clean water● Recharges Water Table● Deep Root WateringBiomass:• Wicks H20 via transpiration• Removes contaminants
