Cisterns

A Prototype Analysis for Determining the Stormwater Retention and Water Supply Benefits of Cisterns

Cisterns are usually considered for their water supply benefit. This paper evaluates how effective cisterns are as flood control measures as well as water supply. It considers a problematic situation that is becoming common in the southwest – residential areas on small lots where over half the lot is impermeable. The study uses a simple mass- balance relationship with daily input of rainfall to the cistern and daily use of the water by two citrus trees.
