RAINWATER CATCHMENT WORKSHOP
IN MONTEREY, CALIFORNIA
The American Rainwater Catchment Systems Association (ARCSA) and Monterey Peninsula Water Management District, are pleased to offer a comprehensive Rainwater Catchment Accredited Professional (AP) two-day training course on August 26 and 27, 2015 at California American Water Training Center in Monterey, California.
This in-depth rainwater harvesting course is required for those seeking ARCSA Accredited Professional status. The course provides attendees with knowledge for rainwater harvesting, both active and passive design and installation for both outdoor and in-home rainwater use; sanitation for potable uses; rules and regulations, guidelines and restrictions; business management; project planning; site and installation safety; and system construction and maintenance. Larger commercial systems will also be covered. The course includes a rainwater harvesting planning manual as part of the tuition.
With the ongoing water crisis in California, this workshop will focus on the Central coast and Central Valley. California residents are encouraged to attend to learn to capture stormwater, while creating additional “reservoirs” to store water for future beneficial uses. You can’t use it if you don’t store it.
Sign up early to ensure seating. Lunch is provided both days. Registration is $395 for ARCSA Members and $495 for non-Members. There is a $120.00 rebate to residents of Monterey Peninsula Water Management District. To become an ARCSA Accredited Professional, there is an additional $150.00 testing fee and ARCSA membership is required. ARCSA membership is $75 annually. Register online and sign up for membership at www.arcsa.org.
ARCSA is a 501c3 nonprofit organization, and one of the creators of current national and state codes for rainwater harvesting. For more information, please contact Tim Pope, ARCSA’s Education Coordinator, at 360.317.4192 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
