  • Dozens of projects are documented on Appropedia. These projects usually cover background, literature review, criteria, constraints, design, construction, maintenance, and testing. In addition, some of them have follow-ups from years later discussing successes, failures, and evolution. These innovations and implementation are all shared, open-source, to build upon, adapt, and improve rainwater harvesting for all at http://appropedia.org/Portal:Rainwater_ harvesting. If you are looking for DIY examples to follow, this is the place to look (Figure 5-13). Some examples include:

    • Rainwater for wine barrel soaking
    • Integrated, permitted, rainwater for household-wide use in Portland, OR, USA
    • Rainwater for a hostel in Costa Rica
