Title: Rainwater Haversting Unit
Author: Morgan, Robert J.; Nyenhuis, Jeremy I.; Basso, Scott E.
Abstract: In this paper we will present a rainwater harvesting system for the CAMTAC Linamar Plant in Guelph, Ontario. The main concept is to capture precipitation on the plant roof and gather it to a local point inside the facility. This water will then be treated and used for CAMTAC cooling processes instead of using municipal water. The design consists of new collection piping, 20 000 gallons of holding capacity, a low maintenance grid trap chamber, and an ultraviolet disinfection system. The systems results show a potential savings of $16,750 per year and a payback of 24 months.
