Seattle’s Hope Church gets 100% Rainwise Rebate for Cisterns

Seattle’s Rainwise program found that large buildings capture and treat stormwater more efficiently than single family homes. The city’s innovative rebate program awarded 100% of the cost for a cistern and irrigation system at a South Seattle church, covering both design and installation, to capture 142,000 gallons of stormwater per year and effectively reduce the force of peak storm flows.
