Rainwater Harvesting in West Texas

Some say “Lions and Tigers and Bears, Oh My!” but when the Lakota Water Company crew recently traveled to Fluvanna, Texas it was roaming coyotes, mammoth rattlesnakes, and daily sandstorms which kept them company.

With 80-mph winds as part of the norm in this region, the Lakota crew realized their rainwater collection system would need some extra help.  By reinforcing the  structural support  on the 40,000-gallon system’s piping into the tank, they ensured the integrity of the system.

The crew agreed it was all worth it thanks to the giant, homemade cinnamon rolls and breakfast provided by homeowners John and Jetta.    In addition, these fine folks collected a foot of rain the night the crew left — after getting no rain the past 6 months!
