Tanks Alot with the USDA Provides a Rainwater System for the Alabama-Coushatta Tribe of Texas

 

 

Tanks Alot along with a local USDA office facilitated a rainwater harvesting system that utilizes Pioneer Water Tanks America for storage. “The system installed by the Alabama Coushatta Tribe of Texas will allow them to harvest and store 65,000 gallons of rainwater which will be used for wildfire mitigation, irrigation of a community garden, and dust abatement in an arena adjacent to the Veteran’s Pavilion.” Read the full story with the U.S. Department of Agriculture:

The rainwater harvesting system collects rainwater off of the Veterans Pavilion rooftop. The Veterans Pavilion is a community gathering space that already exists. The Bureau of Indian Affairs Southern Plains Region (BIA) funded the cost of materials for the project and the Alabama-Coushatta Wildland Fire Fighting Crew Tribal members provided the labor.

Tanks Alot, an Authorized Master Dealer, supplied the XLE 50/02 Pioneer Water Tank with a capacity of 65,000 gallons. At the time of the article’s publishing, around 32,500 gallons or about half of the Pioneer Water Tank had already been filled from rainfall.

Rainwater is a clean, nearly neutral pH water source that sustainability utilizes what would otherwise become stormwater runoff. Rainwater harvesting is the collection of rain off of a building roof with conveyance into storage for later use. Rainwater can be used as a drinking water source, for irrigation, livestock, wildlife, fire protection, or even released back into the ground after the rain.

The state of Texas has one of the most comprehensive laws authorizing rainwater harvesting, the Texas House Bill 3391. House Bill 3391 (2011) governs rainwater collection and stipulates that systems that do not require a water rights permit for potable and non-potable use.

In 2001, Texas excluded components of rainwater harvesting systems from sales tax, in Section 151.355 of the Texas Tax Code. Link to the Teas sales tax exemption form: https://pioneerwatertanksamerica.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/06/01-339.pdf
