Rain Water Storage Project Installed!

District Resource Conservationist, Mike Crabtree, has just completed work on a rain water storage project with Jim Botten, a local landowner who has cows and sheep on his property. A 20,000 gallon tank array system was retrofitted to the existing well system. Stock animals had been watered by using water from the well, which used about 50,000 gallons of water a year. Now, this system will fulfill stock animal watering needs throughout the summer season and water from the well will only be needed as back up.
