The summer is now approaching its later months and Arizona is preparing for the monsoon season. Everyone living in the desert knows how beautiful it can be, but they also know how precious water is. Now that the monsoon season is upon us, why not learn about rainwater harvesting and do your bit to conserve some water?
Watershed Management Group (WMG), a local nonprofit organization has been working nonstop for four years to build three community examples of rainwater catching sites and to teach others how to build these green infrastructure projects. Not only do these rainwater-catching devices save water, but they also help to prevent flooding and erosion. The devices divert the rainwater toward native plants and trees to give them much-needed water without destroying the surrounding area. These devices help to produce a much cleaner and greener area while using less water for native vegetation.
