These three tanks are the first properly designed rainwater harvesting systems being used in Atlanta City Parks. They were sponsored by Park Pride in 2010 for their community garden program. Each tank stores 500 gallons of water and contains a roof washer, first flush diverter and calming inlet. Currently they deliver water through gravity. The screens surrounding 2 of the tanks will be planted with vines to add an aesthetic covering. So far the water has stayed clear and clean even with temperatures in the 90 for weeks.
