State of the Water Address
This is where we stand today:
Total rainfall for 2013 so far = 5"
Total water in storage = 9,950 gallons
During a light rain event of 1", my roof surfaces catch 2250 gallons
During a heavy rain event of 1"when the creek runs, I catch an additional 3000 gallons via pump.
Water usage per week:
Ben and Bud = 175 gallons
Greenhouse = 140 gallons
Chickens and rabbits = 1 gallon
Washing dishes/showers = 25 gallons
I have yet to set up purification and filtration for my potable water from my catchment for cooking and drinking because I only use about 5 gallons per week. For that I fill 5 gallon jugs ($1.75)
from the water machine outside the grocery store when I do supply runs to Alpine. 79,88,69, .08",B,0
