Long-Term Rainwater Storage for Droughts
“How can we use long-term rainwater storage for droughts?”
Places like California and Turkey can suffer revolving rounds of short, intense suffocating rains and long, parching droughts. This puts a strain on water resources, as infrastructure is either being destroyed or dry foliage leads to fires. However, can citizens and organizations take advantage of these patterns to build some adaptive capacity? Well, we know that we receive a plethora of rain during flooding season and a deluge during droughts. So what if we were to capture and store some of this water instead of letting it go to waste? By using Long Term Rainwater Storage for Droughts, we can make our communities more safe, resilient, and healthy.
