Nā Wai Ola, The Living Waters:
Harvesting the Heavens. Harvesting rainwater is a practice that has been going on for centuries all over the world. Rainwater is used for a variety of purposes, including domestic water supply. As global warming and growing populations increase the demand on our limited fresh water supplies, more and more places are turning to the ancient practice of harvesting rain. Atop Kīlauea volcano, rainwater collection is the standard way of life and is promulgated by the National Park Service. Join University of Hawai‘i’s Trisha Macomber, author of Guidelines on Rainwater Catchment Systems for Hawai‘i, as she presents options for insuring safe, clean drinking water for the future.
