Summary

Rainwater Harvesting and Stormwater Research is a priority research area identified by the Arizona Governor’s Blue Ribbon Panel on Water Sustainability, which recommended that universities take the lead to identify regulatory barriers, cost and benefits, water quality issues and avenues for increasing utilization of stormwater and rainwater at the regional, community and individual property level. In an effort to address the priority research area, the University of Arizona will develop a decision support tool to be used by public utilities and agencies to evaluate suitability and cost-effectiveness of rainwater and stormwater capture at various scales for multiple benefits. Data from the City of Tucson, Arizona will be used to support [...]

Purpose

The goal of the Water Harvesting Assessment Toolbox is to help communities in the Southwest US identify water resource challenges, understand the role water harvesting can play in meeting these challenges as well as providing multiple additional benefits, and implement locally-appropriate water harvesting efforts. The Toolbox is intended for use by a wide range of water resource decision-makers and community members. Use of the Toolbox is conducted with the assistance of a local facilitator who oversees the assessment process and utilization of the five tools provided with the Toolbox.
