Tom Barrett, owner of Westfield, Indiana-based Green Water Infrastructure, is presenting “Rainwater Harvesting and Condensate Recovery – New Tools for Green Technology”, at the Chicago Center for Green Technology on Tuesday, April 20th from 6-8 p.m. Barrett will explain how the use of locally produced water helps develop a “natural approach” to efficient use of water and relieves storm water management issues. This is Mr. Barrett’s sixth presentation in a series on sustainable development for the Center for Green Technology.
“The Chicago Center for Green Technology is the perfect venue for this presentation as the Center has embraced many of the tools covered in the presentation including green roofs, rainwater harvesting, condensate recovery and rain gardens.,” said Barrett. “This presentation will inspire others to incorporate such practices into their environments.”
