AMARILLO -- The Rainwater Harvesting for Home Landscaping program is being hosted by the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service office in Potter County.

"Rainwater harvesting is an innovative and efficient means of utilizing water," said Nathan Carr, AgriLife Extension agriculture and natural resources agent in Potter County. "This process collects rainwater, stores it and uses it when needed. It is extremely useful as it lessens the demand on existing water supplies and saves for times when it is needed.

The program highlighted:
The need and purpose of harvesting and collecting rainwater.
Rainwater harvest collection and storage systems for homes.
Equipment for rainwater harvest around houses and buildings.
Equipment for home yard irrigation from harvested rainwater.
