New Draft Standard Addresses Stormwater Harvesting Systems


The American Society of Plumbing Engineers (ASPE) has released a new draft standard on stormwater harvesting systems for public review. ARCSA/ASPE 78: Stormwater Harvesting System Design for Direct End-Use Applications, developed with the American Rainwater Catchment Systems Association, covers onsite, single-property stormwater catchment systems that collect and use precipitation or rain from non-rooftop and other impervious surfaces at, below, and above grade. This standard provides guidance on how to design, install, and maintain this safe alternative to utility-provided water.
