ARCSA 2018 Rainwater Harvesting Conference

ARCSA 2018 Rainwater Harvesting Conference

For almost 25 years ARCSA, the American Rainwater Catchment Systems Association, has promoted rainwater harvesting throughout the United States and the world.

ARCSA 2018 Rainwater Harvesting Conference

On September 29 to October 2, ARCSA will be having its 2018 Annual Conference and EXPO at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, GA in collaboration with the American Society of Plumbing Engineers (ASPE) 2018 Conference, held on September 28 to October 3.  This year’s theme is “Storming Weather Challenges.”

ARCSA 2018 Rainwater Harvesting Conference

ARCSA’s 2018 Conference features an outstanding lineup of industry leaders and innovators.  Conference attendees will hear from experts on the intersection of rainwater harvesting with a number of critical issues, including disaster preparedness, water management infrastructure, sustainable communities, and climate change.  This year’s conference will also feature a number of opportunities to network with industry colleagues, including a special evening social event.

Why collect rainwater?  A holistic solution

ARCSA 2018 Rainwater Harvesting Conference

Southface Energy Institute in Atlanta, GA is a nonprofit organization that for more than 30 years has promoted energy, water and resource efficient workplaces, homes and communities throughout the Southeast. In their new Eco Office a cistern was placed on the roof collecting water from a photovoltaic roof to supply water for their toilets, green roof irrigation and to cool the ac units to be more efficient. After several years of use I was asked to upgrade the system – click to learn more. Also, see the Southface Eco Institute in the Greenroof & Greenwall Projects Database.

Rainwater harvesting is the accumulation and storing of rainwater for a later use before it hits the ground.

In my opinion, rainwater is one of the most holistic solutions to help increase our water supply.  Rainwater is created holistically from solar energy evaporating the water from the earth’s surface and cleaning it naturally as it rises.  No energy is required for collection as gravity brings it back to earth clean.

After landing on a roof the rainwater harvesting system collects and filters water into tanks through the design using first flush technology, diverting the filth washed from the roof and allowing the clean mineral free water to be stored in the tank.  At this point no energy has been used.  By collecting water onsite, only a little energy is needed if gravity needs to be overcome to carry the water to its destination.

ARCSA 2018 Rainwater Harvesting Conference

Trees Atlanta Rainwater Harvest System at The Mercedes-Benz Stadium: Trees Atlanta is a nationally recognized non-profit citizens’ group that protects and improves Atlanta’s urban forest. They were given the opportunity to collect rainwater off of the roofs of the Holder, Hunt, Russell, Moody contractors’ trailers for the duration of The Mercedes-Benz Stadium, home of the Atlanta Falcons and Atlanta United, construction period of approximately 3 years. The water was used to supplement the water needs for their downtown plantings. The collection area was almost 8000 square feet and the tanks used could hold 7300 gallons of water. This amount could cover about 50-75% of their water needs depending on the weather patterns.

Rainwater harvesting makes so much sense.  It seems illogical to get water any other way even though we have to capture it somehow.  Lakes lose much of their storage through evaporation and seepage back into the ground.  Many wells are not being recharged in a sustainable fashion.

By creating a decentralized water system through utility and private sector investments our centralized water system can be complemented.  Wells are running dry and lakes collect pollution.

ARCSA 2018 Rainwater Harvesting Conference

Private Atlanta Garden: After several decades an urban gardener who had used only the natural cycle of nature to water his plants decided to extend his growing season by using rainwater. Two tanks were installed: the 650 gallon tank collects approximately 400 gallons of water per 1 inch of rain from the roof and then pumps it to a 2500 gallon tank over 200 feet behind the house. The large tank uses gravity to water the 1800 square foot garden. The system delivers approximately 3000 gallons of water for the garden. The pump also pressurizes water for the smaller tank near the house for other outdoor water use.

More needs to be done to sustain these resources, but by collecting enough water from the rain and using it wisely you should never run out.  Remember, it rains almost everywhere!

A brief history of ARCSA

“In 1994, Dr. Hari J. Krishna of Austin, Texas founded the 501(c)(3) non-profit American Rainwater Catchment Systems Association (ARCSA) to bring renewed attention to the ancient practice of rainwater harvesting. For thousands of years collecting rainwater was a common method for providing water, but over the last century, wells and municipal water supplies took over as primary water sources.

The diminishing supply of fresh water in wells and aquifers, concerns of quality and population growth are among the top reasons for the resurgence of rainwater catchment. The American Rainwater Catchment Systems Association (ARCSA) was created to promote sustainable rainwater harvesting practices throughout the United States and the world.

Our top promotional efforts include: creating a favorable regulatory atmosphere, creating a resource pool and educating professionals and the general public regarding safe rainwater design, installation and maintenance practices. A board of nine directors steers the initiatives of ARCSA and is augmented by regional directors located in various parts of the United States as well as in Australia, New Zealand, Canada and Europe. Together these directors spearhead community outreach, conferences, workshops and membership promotion to raise awareness.

Being a worldwide organization, ARCSA funds a virtual hub at www.arcsa.org. This cyber home offers the public a vast array of information and resources including a project gallery, workshop calendar, course agendas, professional location directory, and more. ARCSA is a membership-based organization whose benefits include access to leading news about the technology and advancements in rainwater catchment. The site establishes a forum for members to share and gain knowledge about the growing industry.

Members include professionals working in city, state, and federal government, academia, manufacturers and suppliers of rainwater harvesting equipment, consultants, as well as backyard amateurs and other interested individuals. This grass-roots organization is on the leading edge of the rainwater harvesting industry. While the spotlight shines brightly on the issue of alternative energy and general sustainability, ARCSA is providing the much-needed expertise and standards to integrate rainwater harvesting back into a prominent role providing water for potable and non-potable purposes.

ARCSA is the first organization to create training and certification for professionals in the rainwater harvesting industry, and has created a suite of training products that can lead to “Accreditation” and our post-graduate level “Certified Professional” status.” ~ ARCSA Foundation

ARCSA 2018 Rainwater Harvesting Conference

After 20 years in photography, Steve Williams decided to change careers and make the world a better place by becoming a LEED Accredited Professional through the US Green Building Council. All the things that he learned through study and living environmentally consciously could be applied through LEED into building practices. LEED also introduced Steve to water issues. Then there was drought. From a love of rivers and appreciation of water he decided to focus on rainwater harvesting, stormwater, and water efficiency and The Rain Saver was born.

Since 2007, Steve started designing and installing rain harvesting systems. In 2008 Steve became an American Rainwater Catchment Systems Association Accredited Professional, ARCSA AP, and is currently the regional rep. In 2012 he began auditing commercial, institutional and multifamily buildings water use and providing solutions to reduce water use primarily through fixture upgrades. Steve also created a plan for Atlanta and other cities to use rainwater harvesting as a stormwater utility providing affordable rainwater systems for those that cannot afford them. To see the plans he created click here. They can be applied in moderate to wet climates, which include the Rainwater Harvesting Stormwater Utility (PDF) and The Tank Plan (PDF). You can also see several studies by Santosh R. Ghimire, Ph.D. comparing rainwater harvesting to domestic water systems.

Currently, Steve is designing and installing rainwater systems in Georgia and helping others use water more efficiently through water audits and fixture upgrades. Steve is currently Chair of the Ocmulgee Basin Advisory Committee of the Metro North Georgia Water Planning District and has been active since 2007.

Greenroofs.com Project of the Week: August 13, 2018

Have you seen the Hobbit-like home in Pawling, New York that’s currently on the market?  Read my new “Hobbit Hollow for Sale in Upstate New York” to learn more about the earth sheltered passive house.  And, since the beloved furry-footed Hobbit dwellings are in the news once more, we’re featuring their “real” home: The Hobbiton™ Movie Set as our Project of the Week again.

Kia ora – Welcome to New Zealand!

“In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit. Not a nasty, dirty, wet hole, filled with the ends of worms and an oozy smell, nor yet a dry, bare, sandy hole with nothing in it to sit down on or to eat: it was a hobbit-hole, and that means comfort.” ~ J.R.R. Tolkien, The Hobbit

Hobbiton Movie Set

As a lifelong fan of The Lord of the Rings (LOTR) books and subsequent epic fantasy adventure movies, I naturally was extremely excited when I was in Auckland, New Zealand in 2014.  I was invited to speak at a private function organized by Graham Cleary of Natural Habitats and was overjoyed at the prospect of finally visiting Hobbiton, the movie set located on the North Island where Sir Peter Jackson’s The Lord of the Rings (New Line Cinema) and The Hobbit (Warner Brothers) trilogies were partially filmed.

Hobbiton Movie Set

New Zealand, Aotearoa in Maori, is a beautiful, magical country with varied landscapes – gorgeous rocky beaches with beautiful shells; lush, oversized vegetation reminiscent of a land of the lost look like throwbacks to prehistoric times; rolling green hills dotted with grazing sheep; magnificent mountains with soaring jagged peaks; stunning lakes; and so much more.

Hobbiton Movie Set

Aramis and I spent about a week here on the North Island with Natural Habitats’ Graham and Louise Cleary as hosts at their lovely coastal home on the Great Barrier Island followed by a couple of days in Auckland where I had the pleasure of speaking to about 100 professionals at The Northern Club, ending in our visit to mythical Hobbiton, the highlight of my trip (Aramis is not the huge fan that I am, however even he loved it!).

Hobbiton Movie Set

As luck would have it, at the time Graham’s company was creating a greenwall for Peter Jackson and his studio, Wingnut Films Productions Limited.  At first he tried to have us visit that project, but timing didn’t allow it…so Graham arranged for a private, behind-the-scenes tour of the Hobbiton™ Movie Set from one of Wingnut Films Productions crew – Brian Massey, the Academy Award-winning art director, no less, from the LOTR!  You can imagine my geeky excitement!

Hobbit Hollow for Sale in Upstate New York

August 13, 2018 at 4:24 pm

Hobbit Hollow

As seen on various media recently, The Hobbit Hollow resides in Pawling, a town in upstate New York, and is now on the market for sale.

A true labor of love from a J.R.R. Tolkien super fan, civil engineer Jim Costigan recently completed his own Hobbit hole, started almost seven years ago.  Jim reluctantly said, “I’ve got to take the Ring and throw it into the fires of Mordor.”

Hobbit Hollow

Hobbit Hollow

Jim’s cast-in-place concrete roof, earth sheltered Passive House is very energy-efficient and he says it uses 90 percent less energy to heat and cool it compared to the average home.  Along with a beautiful living roof, Hobbit Hollows’ sustainable features comprise low air infiltration; super-insulated walls, roof, and floor; high-performance windows and exterior doors; energy recovery ventilation; and ADA accessibility both inside and out.

Hobbit Hollow

Yet, the reason the Lord of the Rings (LOTR), The Hobbit, and The Silmarillion enthusiast built a Hobbit hole was for love.  First, Jim built a smaller shed as a tribute and then this 1,500 square-foot home with all of the modern trimmings as his interpretation of a Hobbit abode from the Peter Jackson movie trilogies.

“The house in the movie was off the charts. That’s what really inspired me, how do you build a house that’s like that?” ~ Jim Costigan, News12 Westchester

Hobbit Hollow

Hobbit Hollow

Well, Jim has a blog devoted to answer that exact question – visit My Hobbit Shed and especially see beautiful photos of his finished Hobbit Hollow in the Construction Blog page.  Here are just some roof construction details:

“In addition to tapering the roof slab and thickening the walls and floor, the engineering “wizard” called for the wall-to-arched-slab intersection to be poured monolithically (the roof slab was poured in stages to prevent cold joints from occurring in the tapered slab’s more structurally critical thickened portions). First, they poured the thickened edges (10 feet up the roof) along the length of the building, then finished up with the remaining center section. Continuous “shear keys” were formed in both concrete walls (at the footing and roof-to-wall junctures) to prevent lateral movement.” ~ Forming a Hobbit House Roof, JLC Online

Greenroofs.com Project of the Week: Hobbiton™ Movie Set

Just like Aramis and my favorite late night show host, Stephen Colbert, I’m a huge LOTR fan, too (OK, I’m certainly not as nerdy as Stephen – I wish I were, but I’m not).  As many of you know, we visited the Hobbiton™ Movie Set in New Zealand in 2014 and it was truly an experience of a lifetime – read my Greenroofs.com Explores Middle-earth at Hobbiton, NZ.

In Jim’s honor, we are once again featuring the Hobbiton™ Movie Set as our current Project of the Week:

Obviously, as an equally obsessive greenroof devotee and promoter, I just had to share Jim’s passionate construction journey and story with you!

Greenroofs.com Project of the Week for July 30, 2018: Fenway Farms

Greenroofs.com Project of the Week: July 30, 2018

While enjoying the summer here in the suburbs of Atlanta, I remembered back three years ago when Aramis, one of my best friends D’Arcy Goldman, our daughter Anjuli, and our then 6-year old grandson Nicky had the pleasure of visiting Fenway Farms in Boston.  I figured this would be a great time to replay it.

On July 7, 2015 we were given a wonderful private tour by Brendan Shea of Recover Green Roofs, the company who designed and installed the Red Sox’s Fenway Park rooftop farm.

Fenway Farms

The early July temperature difference from the street below on Yawkey Way to the lush verdant field of crops above was palpable!  Part of an ongoing campaign by the Red Sox to exemplify and promote healthy and responsible ways of living, it felt (I didn’t actually measure) 10 degrees cooler as Brendan led us through the many rows of varied, colorful vegetables and flowers.

Nicky had a great time exploring the paths and wandering amongst the large leafy greens, and had quite a few questions of his own for Brendan, like how did they get those plants up onto the roof?

Fenway Farms

Fenway Farms

Brendan talked about their modular system filled with compost-based growing media, the smart irrigation system, their partner Green City Growers who provide all farm management services including planting and harvesting, and the bountiful harvest already grown since opening day on April 13 of 2015.

The Red Sox ownership is another great example of corporate leadership – a living testament to greening our built environment – this time above the world famous Fenway Park, the oldest baseball stadium in the U.S., and one of the greenest.

Fenway Farms

Afterwards we were treated to watching some of the Red Sox team warm up, and we ended our visit to Fenway Park with a lively game against our own Miami Marlins (who unfortunately lost).  Thank you again to Mark Winterer and Brendan Shea of Recover Green Roofs for a memorable tour of a fantastic project!

Mini Description & Details

Seeded atop the roof of the Red Sox front office and the Gate A entrance of Boston’s beloved Fenway Park, Fenway Farms is the 7,000 square foot rooftop garden designed to provide over 6,000 pounds of organic produce to ballpark attendees each year.

Since its completion for Opening Day on April 13, 2015, Fenway Farms has invigorated what was once an oddly shaped, unused roof into a thriving rooftop farm.

Fenway Farms

Fenway Farms

The transformation was initially conceived by Linda Pizzuti, wife of Boston Red Sox owner John Henry, as part of an ongoing campaign by the Red Sox to exemplify and promote healthy and responsible ways of living.

As such, the project was engineered with sustainability in mind on all levels, is highly visible to ballpark attendees, and has been included as a stop on the official Fenway Park tour.

Fenway Farms

Fenway Farms

Covered with a waterproofing membrane from Carlisle, Recover Green Roofs designed and built Fenway Farms using its Recover Aerated Media Module (RAAM) system, which features a series of 5-gallon non-woven fabric-lined crates made of 50% recycled plastic content.

Located long the 3rd base side of Fenway Park, the site is equipped with an automated Weathermatic Smartlink drip irrigation system to conserve water while supporting the farm’s rotating array of vegetables and herbs.  Crops are sown in locally sourced Vermont Compost Company soil, and Fenway EMC Chefs are incorporated into the process of selecting which plants will be grown each season.

They then utilize the weekly harvests in salads and fresh side dishes prepared in the EMC Club kitchen, incorporating a range of arugula, snap peas, and rosemary in the spring season to eggplant and potatoes come the summer months.

Fenway officials hope to teach fans and younger folks about the importance of sustainability and healthy living, and Fenway Farms is a tool for that education.
