Our memberships consist of professionals working in city, state, and federal government, academia, manufacturers and suppliers of rainwater harvesting equipment, consultants, and other interested individuals. Membership is not limited to the United States, and we encourage all rainwater harvesting practitioners and enthusiasts to join our organization.
ARCSA's Mission Statement
The Mission of the American Rainwater Catchment Systems Association is to promote sustainable rainwater harvesting practices to help solve potable, non-potable, stormwater and energy challenges throughout the world.
ARCSA's 9th Annual Conference - November 5th through November 7th, 2013
This year our Conference will focus on captured rainwater as a water source for exterior irrigation and interior plumbing applications as well as the water quality required at the point of water usage. We will discuss the different requirements for residential systems versus commercial systems and the differences between a "plug-n-play" system and an "al-a-cart" system. We will also discuss the latest on legislative actions, rainwater guidelines, and stormwater guidelines. A long awaited national rainwater survey will be reviewed along with rainwater catchment university level research and USGBC LEED rainwater related credits. A conference wrap-up will include a panel and attendee discussion on the future of rainwater catchment.
This year promises to be one of our best conferences providing attendees both ARCSA's educational rainwater sessions and IA's educational irrigation sessions as well as access to the irrigation/rainwater/pond exhibition.
