Neighborhood Water Harvesting Workshop

Time: Saturday, February 14, 8am-12pm

Location: Rincon Heights Neighborhood (6th street & Campbell Ave. area), details given upon registration

Watershed Management Group ( is hosting a workshop on Saturday, February 14 from 8am to 12pm  in the Rincon Heights neighborhood (6th St./Campbell area).  At this free workshop you’ll gain hands-on experience installing simple landscape features like basins and curb cuts that passively collect stormwater runoff to create beautiful, self-sustaining pockets of native vegetation.  This workshop will be useful for anyone interested in learning knowledge and skills of rainwater harvesting that they can use on their own properties and neighborhood areas.  The 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. To reserve your spot and get directions to the site, please RSVP to James MacAdam, phone 780-9416, email:
