Right-of-Way Rainwater Harvesting Workshop

posted Tuesday, December 2, 2008        

Watershed Management Group (watershedmg.org) is hosting a workshop in the Rincon Heights neighborhood (near 6th St./Campbell Ave.). As part of WMG’s and Rincon Heights’ model program to improve water quality in urban neighborhoods, we’ll be shaping basins and swales, laying rockwork and gravel, and planting native vegetation. This workshop will be of particular interest to those who want to learn more about working in the City of Tucson’s right-of-way (between sidewalk and curb) to harvest rain water from adjacent properties, sidewalks, and from street runoff via curb cuts. The workshop will include information on city requirements, and hands-on practice working within this valuable and often overlooked public space.

There is space for 25 people at this free, public workshop. Complete details will be given upon registration.  To reserve your spot, please RSVP to:
