Drought proof- no water bills!

The Stonehurst Place Bed and Breakfast on Piedmont Ave. is undergoing renovations to be more environmentally friendly.

Beside the house the tanks will be filled underground.

They are installing a water reclaiming system that requires installation of two 1700 water tanks. The tanks will be covered by dirt and cement and will look like a normal driveway that nobody from above the ground will be able to tell the difference outside. The tanks will filter rain water and heat it with solar heaters, when the process is done, the water will be cleaner than ordinary tap water. The cost...estimated at $150,000. ....but no more water bills!

The hole is measured for depth and level accuracy.

The water tanks.

A television program shoots a spot "in" the tanks.
