Harvesting the Rain

Eckerd College's Campus Garden finally has the capability of harvesting rain water. Rain water collection is especially important at Eckerd College and in Pinellas County. Most of Pinellas County does not have an aquifer beneath its soil. Rather salt water has intruded inland. This forces us to pump our drinking water from further north. This is a big deal when you consider the sheer volume that is required to support Pinellas County, the most densely populated county in Florida.
