Title: Design of a rainwater harvesting system for a manufacturing plant
Author: Rollings-Scattergood, Sasha; Hillaby, Scott; Brunsting, Joseph
Abstract: Rainwater harvesting systems are becoming increasingly popular. The basic concept is to collect, store, treat and distribute rainwater for use. The proposed design was developed for the CAMTAC Linamar manufacturing facility in Guelph, Ontario. The design incorporates a 22:7 m3 underground cistern, a filtration and disinfection system, and distribution plumbing to the plant's reverse osmosis unit. Simulations indicate the proposed design has a projected return on investment of approximately 2.3 years and has potential to save 4000 m3 of mains water per year.
