  • Two separate water reuse structures: 60,000 gallons and 40,000 gallons.
  • Constructed in April 2009, the first Tank structure took 4.5 days to complete. The second Tank structure took three days to complete.
  • The Total number of EcoRain Single Tanks used was 23,200.
  • Native backfill was used for sand/gravel backfill mixture due to naturally high porosity rates.
  • The total excavation footprint for each structure was approximately two feet due to high water tables.
