This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEP curriculum.  Completing this BB is part of getting the straw badge in Plumbing.

In this Badge Bit, you will build a simple rainwater harvesting system.  Need a bit of water and have a roof handy?  Let's collect some of it!

Here's one:


To complete this BB, the minimum requirements are:
  - create a simple way to collect rainwater and make it usable
  - plan for overflow
  - more than 20 gallons
  - it does not need a diverter or first flush system

To show you've completed this Badge Bit, provide proof of the following as pics or video (less than two minutes):
  - the location before you start
  - the parts you'll be turning into a rain barrel
  - the construction underway
  - the finished rain water collection system
