“We’re able to capture or use about 3 million gallons of water,”And lawmakers aren't the only one's using the system:
At the new Heritage Middle School in Wake Forest, rain water is collected, then piped into the school's toilets for flushing. North Guilford Middle School, Millbrook Elementary in Raleigh and Montessori Community School in Chapel Hill are some other schools in the area that use the storm-water system.Encouraging signs for Raleigh, and it should go further. As the city grows (and hopefully upwards and not outwards), there should be more urban landscape improvements such as GreenRoofs, GreenWalls, and integrated ecosystem architecture. Referring back to the ethos of urbanism instead of urbanisation.
