I'm not sure what my title is on this project, I think I'm an advisor or something; regardless, I think it's a project worth sharing. What you're looking at is the top of a storm water storage unit that will serve as a collection space for an underground water filter/rain garden. The student running this show will have a detailed post about the rain garden when it's completed. Until then, just think of this: during any single rain storm heavier than a drizzle, we will be able to fill a 1550 gallon cistern with water that is close to potable.
When the post is ready on my other blog I'll be sure to link it here as well.
