FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Knoxville, TN, September 17, 2014…….Denis Rochat, President of Knoxville based Rainwater Resources announced today the transfer of a 1,500 gallon capacity cistern/rainwater collection system to the City of Farragut, TN. The former city maintenance site has been landscaped and converted into a park-like outdoor classroom to demonstrate various methods of protecting local watersheds. Among those methods is capturing rainwater from the classroom shelter rooftop, and conveying it to storage for use irrigating the parks extensive landscaping. The Rainwater Resources system will supply 15,000 gallons per year.
The design operates on gravity flows of rainwater into rooftop guttering, and thence to a Wisy vortex pre filter which diverts the first flush of dirty runoff as required by current EPA regulations. At the point first flush is accomplished the Wisy filer releases the remainder of each rain incident into a 1,500 gallon above ground polyethylene tank. A custom made control display for public education, mounted near the tank, monitors performance, operates a submersible pump in the cistern and, activates Ultra Violet light purification. Key to maintaining clear water without chemical treatment is Rainwater Resources ingress and egress flow design which protects a natural biofilm inside the cistern. The biofilm, a naturally occurring phenomena guarantees clear, odor free water.
