#555: Urban rain capturing systems: Munsell comments
From: John Munsell <JMunsell@maf.org>
Almost all of the people I know in my circle of friends (not too big a
circle I guess) including myself all collect the rain water off of the roof
and drain into the cystern. As far as I know, a lot of people do this.
Then when there is current we pump it onto the roof for the gravity fed
water system. I usually buy about 3 to 4 trucks of water (3000 gal) a year
during the dry season. The rest is all rain water. I'm sure we use a lot
of water compared to most Haitians. CAMEP (the public water system) is
somewhat of a joke in my neighborhood.
