Collection of much needed water and the production of electricity. Water for fire suppression, water for freeway plants, etc. This will save water that is currently used for agricultural and many other uses, every drop counts. It also helps keep our streams and rivers clean. This system will create massive amounts of Electricity for California’s grid and for powering lights and signs along the freeway electric vehicle charging stations, (These can be installed at rest stops) not to mention advertising sign revenue.
Manufactured in California, creating great paying jobs, and again California will lead the world in Climate change solutions and creativity and as always California leads by example.
One inch of rain landing on each 2000 sq. foot of collection surfaces (In this case using solar Panels) harvests 1260 gallons of pure fresh water!!! When the rain slackens off, WaterFence can be filled and refilled with reusable water from the local water treatment plants. The slow release of water at night allows the ground to absorb the water and keeps it from being evaporated. Green growth along the freeways helps keep the temperatures down.
One of the huge advantages of using WaterFence for watering is the ability of water to be drawn from every seven feet of fence. With shutoff valves for each tank the ability to place drip systems from anywhere along the wall.
WaterFence will harvest 181,000 gallons of rain water per mile with only 1 inch of rain and that much again every time it rains 1 inch. Over flows are built in to the system in case of excess rain fall and operate without any intervention. Keeps thousands of gallons from Highway out of our streams and rivers.
