Building Matters: Rainwater "Borrowing"

Water is our most natural resource, yet harvesting and using it in buildings is one of our most complicated ordinances. Learn how rainwater has historically been used in buildings, how other areas of the country are slowly starting to make net-zero-water buildings a reality, and what opportunities Ann Arbor has to be a water leader.

This event is offers 1 continuing education LU and will cover:

- The relationship between architecture and rainwater through history and in the present day

- The policies and restrictions with regards to rainwater collection at the local, county, and state level

- How the relationship between buildings and cities and rainwater may be evolving in the future

- An overview of general systems for building rainwater collection and municipal rainwater infrastructure, and new techniques for managing rainwater

Jessica Letaw is continuing her workshop series called Building Matters at the downtown AADL; this one is on rainwater use.
