Water Conservation through Rainwater Harvesting

ATC have recently erected two 216m2 storage buildings at Plumstead railhead. Considering the size of the available roof space, rainwater harvesting seemed a simple yet effective means of meeting some of our water conservation goals. To successfully capture this we utilised some redundant piping on site, made some minor guttering adjustments and procured 4x 1000L IBC’s costing ATC a sum total of £680.

The objective of the rainwater harvesting will provide a free of cost, additional water supply to a number of construction disciplines: dust suppression, tool washing and assist in feeding the water supply to ATC concrete train.

To meet these demands all 4 IBC’s can be moved to various locations using an onsite telehandler and the inlet of each IBC has been specifically cut to allow our tractor bowser to easily access it with its suction hose.
