Rain Water catchment system

Tuolumne County Resource Conservation District is offering a rebate for installed rainwater catchment systems. One inch of rain on 1,000 square feet of roof can generate up to 600 gallons of water. Encouraging responsible rainwater collection is conducive to Tuolumne County RCD’s core goal of enabling water savings and promoting watershed health throughout the region.
