The Water Harvesting Assessment Toolbox is a prototype decision aid designed to help communities in the Southwest US understand the role water harvesting can play in meeting water resource challenges while providing multiple additional benefits. It also introduces water harvesting techniques and suggests ways to implement locally appropriate water harvesting efforts. The Toolbox is intended for a wide range of users. In order to make most effective use of the Toolbox, a local facilitator should convene a varied group of community personnel (water supply management, stormwater management, transportation, planning, engineering, etc.) to go through the water harvesting assessment process together. A separate Facilitator’s...

Guide to Assessing Rainwater and Stormwater Harvesting Potential to Meet Multiple Challenges and Provide Multiple Benefits. The Water Resources Research Center established the Desert Water Harvesting Initiative to enhance outreach and communication between utilities, practitioners of water harvesting, academics, and interested citizens. The Initiative includes a two-year WaterSMART research grant to develop a decision guide to rainwater and stormwater harvesting; an online data clearinghouse for research and publications on water harvesting, low-impact development, and green infrastructure; and the Rainwater-Stormwater Professionals Networks (RSPN) that meets semi-annually at the WRRC to keep members abreast of...

n the Upper Basin of the Colorado River, 52% of the salt loading comes from irrigated agriculture, 9% from natural point sources, and only 2% from municipal and industrial uses. Damage from salt loading occurs mostly in the Lower Colorado River Basin. Remedies for salinity problems include collecting and treating or disposal of natural point sources. Cost-effective technologies for dealing with salt loadings due to irrigated agriculture include improved irrigation and on-farm management practices to reduce deep percoaltion loss and the building of canals and laterals to channel salt losses. Development of coal and oil shale resources in the Upper Colorado River Basin will necessitate use of river water, allowing...
