Water Systems & Earthworks – Theory


Water is a fundamental resource that is key to our planetary survival. Starting with understanding the hydrological cycle and the key functions of water in the ecosystem, participants will see water as a precious natural resource that is vital to all life on the planet.

Whole systems water management will be reviewed including water conservation, catchment, treatment and storage. Guiding principles behind regenerative water management are explored along with an overview of techniques. Tools for calculating potential onsite water catchment, appropriate roofing and tank materials are shared. Land surveying is taken to the next level with a focus on slowing, spreading, sinking and storing opportunities.
