I have been waiting for this announcement since 2009 when I last wrote about rainwater harvesting in the June issue of Wine Business Monthly. It has taken far longer than it should have but the following press release finally validates everything many have been advocating for years.

Now that the American Society of Plumbing Engineers (ASPE) has joined forces with American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and National Science Foundation (NSF) there is nothing to hold the winery back from pursuing this wonderfully viable and sustainable resource.

One of the major drivers of this movement has been the American Rainwater Catchment Systems Association (ARCSA) who have written the book about rainwater harvesting.

I will be discussing this in greater detail in the March 2014 issue of WBM, from design to sizing, and also interviewing some wineries that already successfully farms the skies.
