>From: "Craig Tufts" <TUFTS@nwf.org> (by way of Lucy Bradley 
>Subject: rainfall catchment. -Reply
>I too have generally been disappointed by a lack of rain water interest 
>especially in Hawaii where until 50 years ago, rainwater was a major source 
>of water for human consumption, landscape use etc.  
>There are some good organizations doing rainwater conservation work however. 
>The best I've run into is ARCSA(American Rainwater Catchment Systems 
>Association) in Texas.  Try www.nku.edu/~biosci/ARCSA.html as a possible web 
>site for them. 
>Also there is a video and manual that was available(according to an ARCSA 
>newsletter) from the Texas Water Development Board(about two years ago) 
>which was produced by the Austin-based Center for Maximum Potential Building 
>Systems..email pwaters@twdb.state.tx.us .
>A couple of other items....there is a small business that supplies do it 
>yourselfers with rain harvesting gear called Tank Town.  Again in Texas 
>phone 512-894-0861....Their address is 1212 Quail Ridge, Dripping Springs, 
>TX 78620.  The Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center, in Austin, has a 
>functional, beautiful rainwater harvesting system that was designed into 
>their new(5 years old) building. Darrel Morrison of Univ of Georgia did the 
>design for much of the gardens and perhaps some of the buildings. You may 
>want t to contact him. Also, called the Lady Bird
>Johnson Center. Julie Barrett Huffington is Ed Director and could probably 
>direct you to who designed their water system.
>Good luck! Please pass on anything new you find.
