Resilient in Brentwood
Stormwater is captured from the 7,000 square foot roof, filtered and stored in ten underground plastic tanks of 1,787 gallons each, plus one above-ground 5,000-gallon tank which is housed in a Spanish-tiled water-house building that matches the architecture of the residence. The total stormwater capture capacity is 23,000 gallons.
The automated water management system maximizes this storage capacity by deep watering shrubs and trees in advance of storms during the winter season when they need it most. Overall, water consumption will be decreased by 80% once the new plantings are established.
