 Cater Field Rainwater Reclamation


Carter Field is a City of Boston park that was recently rebuilt by Northeastern University.  As part of the project, 75% of water irrigation is fed by the rainwater collected on site.  Rainwater is collected from the tennis courts is collected in a 14,000-gallon underground tank.  In an average year the rainwater collection system is expected to save about 150,000 gallons of water that would have been sourced from the public water supply to irrigate plants at Carter Field.


The irrigation system is primarily a drip system and the soil moisture irrigation controller automatically adjust watering times such that the irrigation system will run only when it is necessary.
