Title: Industrial Rainwater Harvesting Design for Guelph Area
Author: Colvin, Christopher; Kwan, Lana; Doody, Laura
Abstract: This paper presents a rainwater harvesting system to reduce CAMTAC Linamar's municipal potted water costs. The principle behind the design is to channel the rainwater collected from the plant's roof into a piping system. Through multiple lters, including first flush, basket, UV, and reverse osmosis, the water will then enter the site's storage tank. Using an automated system, the design will allow continual supply of water by either rain or main lines. The design was simulated using EPA SWMM 5 and the results used to optimize pipe length and cistern size for collection and cost effciency.
