Water Cisterns

Department of Aviation Maintenance installed three, 2,500-gallon water cisterns. The cisterns capture water run-off from a roof. The water collected from the cisterns is used to irrigate the xeriscaped areas, as well as other areas. From May to August, the Maintenance unit uses approximately 8,000 gallons per month of the harvested rainwater. During the cooler months and depending on rainfall events, not as much water is needed or used from the cisterns.
