Residential Rainwater Harvesting

In 2021, Ciudad SWCD used grant funding from the NM Soil and Water Conservation Commission and from the Alliance for Water Efficiency, and in partnership with Bernalillo County, to construct a prototype passive rainwater harvesting swale and basin feature at the historic Gutierrez-Hubbell House in Bernalillo County, and to produce a series of instructional videos about how such residential-scale passive rainwater harvesting features can be economically and simply constructed and maintained.

By harvesting rainwater you can create a beautiful, locally-adapted, low-water-use landscape in your own yard. Check out our training videos and resources:
