Store rainwater from rooftops

Store rainwater from rooftops that can be used on lawns and gardens.
A cistern like this one, or a rain barrel at your home, will help to slow down storm-water runoff, allowing the water to soak into the ground. This is an effective way to reduce the amount of pollution that flows into our local stream, the Muddy Branch. We do this to keep our drinking water cleaner and the Chesapeake Bay healthier.
