More Water Harvesting >
Along with the network of rabbit and mole tunnels, there’s a growing layout of water pipelines below the grass at our Field Centre. We’ve started to plot their positions to help future diggers and water dreamers. Here’s our second chart:
Here’s our first scribble of the new water system, designed when all the water trickled through broken terracota field drains and the kitchen water supply came through a thin rusted iron pipe from the main spring (Oak Spring):
We’ve spent a while over the last month working on ways to recycle and harness our field centre’s water.
There will be ten water stores for : Spring Water; Rainwater; Pond Water; Road Run-off Water; U.V.Filtered Water; Conditioned Water that recycled through our hydroponic unit; Grey Water; Foul Water; Borehole Water and Brook Water.
This diagram (below) is our first infographic to show how each supply will move around site from tanks through ponds and into osier beds. It looks a bit complex but on site, all supply and distribution lines are now underground and the next job is to make the tanks merge with the landscape … beautifully.
