Storm water is a harvestable resource
Why do we let so much water (and pollution) simply go down the drain?Here is a video of ARI Water Solutions in action cleaning 80kg of waste from a drain on a construction site.Storm water can be filtered and harvested at source.  At the same time, this stops rubbish and pollution entering our oceans.  Local Councils and Water Authorities can save big dollars on maintenance by not having to clear blockages.  Plus this solution helps to prevent flash floods due to storm water banking up and spilling over.https://www.ariwater.com.au/
