Title: Water Supply for the Guelph Center for Urban Organic Farming
Author: Chatfield, Richard J.; Hummelen, Brendan R.C.; Sebastian, Rodel A.; Trudell, Paul R.
Abstract: In this paper we present an environ- mentally friendly rain water harvesting system to supply a 2 acre organic farm with all of its water requirements. The main idea is to capture all the required water from the roofs of nearby building. An underground piping network will be used to carry the water to an in ground tank. From here the water will be pumped through a filtration system on its way to the site. The sys tem supplies enough water to support the farm throughout the entire year at a cost of approxi- mately $60,000.
