Rainwater Capture

With the completion of our new equipment shed I updated our rainwater capture calculations.  With the new shed connected to our collection system we will now catch 7,536 gallons of water per inch of rain.  With Burnet county annual rainfall averaging 33 inches per year we’ll be capable of collection about 250,000 gallons annually.  That works out to a water budget of 680 gallons per day.  To put that in perspective an average household of four people use about 400 gallons per day, so I think we are pretty well set.
