Mid Island

Mid Vancouver Island case study

Our clients wanted to collect rainwater for landscape irrigation use. This area in Mid Vancouver Island is known for its poor producing wells, rainwater harvesting is a great way to augment their current water system. A fence was used to support the conveyance pipe as it runs from below the gutter to the tank.
