Installing the Water Tank

The new 5000 gallon rainwater catchment tank has been moved to its new home at the Talmage State Preschool Garden! The River School students led by Joe Scriven from the Mendocino County Water Agency have been designing the new rainwater catchment system to capture rainwater from the preschool's roof.
The final connection between the roof and the tank should happen in the next weeks to capture Spring rain. Much thanks to the North Coast Resource Conservation and Development Council, the Community Foundation of Mendocino County, and MCOE Youth Garden for supplying funds to purchase the tank and its components.
