greywater recycling. In 1995, Tim moved to Friday Harbor, Washington, to help resolve ongoing
water issues in San Juan County. He co-authored the county’s “alternative water source”
guidelines that were implemented later that year. In 1997 he was instrumental in the San Juan
County Commissioners passing new codes that accepted rainwater harvesting as a viable and
legal water source including potable for new construction. Tim also worked with Washington
State Department of Ecology in getting an exemption from water rights in 2003.

Timbuilt his first rainwater catchment system for potable use on San Juan Island in late 1995.
Since that time, he has designed and installed more than 280 whole house rainwater catchment
systems, of which 99% are for potable uses only. Tim is a Lifetime Member of ARCSA an Accredited Professional Master, an installer and a licensed water system designer in San Juan County.
