Rain water harvesting
Water falling on the roof of the house, and the garage shall be collected and diverted to storage tanks to the rear of the house. There it can be pumped back to a header tank to be located on the roof of the house so water may be re-used for flushing toilets and topping up the pond.
Excess water from the rainwater harvesting system should discharge into a new soak away to be located to the rear of the house (North side).
A French Drain will need to be provided along the front of the garage to a new soak away to be installed at the front of the house (South side). Likewise a 2nd French Drain will need to be installed at the boundary to the site, with the associated soak away to be located under the ‘shared access’ section of the driveway (on our side).
