This program educates the public about rainwater harvesting and other water-related issues so that we can have a sustainable water supply for generations to come. This website is full of information about rainwater harvesting basics (including videos), upcoming events and programs, and locations where you can see a rainwater harvesting demonstration site in person. The group of Extension Personnel are only part of the rainwater harvesting educational effort. There are several personnel who help to make effective programming happen successfully in both the A&M System and beyond.

The rainwater harvesting group is an interdisciplinary group of educators and researchers within the Texas A&M System. We aim to educate Texans about rainwater harvesting as an alternate and/or supplemental source of water so that they can have a sustainable source of water for years to come. We also educate about rainwater harvesting as means to control stormwater runoff, which helps to reduce pollution in our rivers and streams. In person agent led programs are available.
