Title: A Rainwater Harvesting System for an Industrial Facility in Guelph
Author: Hodgins, Eric; Muller, Jeremy; Hall, Matthew
Abstract: A rainwater harvesting system for Linamar's CAMTEC manufacturing plant has been designed. This rainwater system will replace a large portion of the plant water usage. The design includes a network of piping to capture precipitation from the roof, and a pipe network to direct water to a holding cistern. This water will then be filtered and stored in a network of larger cisterns which will be consumed by the reverse osmosis unit feeding the manufacturing processes. The design was analyzed and it was found that an annual savings of approximately $1000 is achievable due to reduced purchasing of city-supplied water.
