Here's a link to Jenny's thesis on sustainable water supply solutions for residences. The thesis provides a framework for public administrators to implement rainwater harvesting systems in their region.  It also serves as a tool for all as a 'how to' guide to water supply needs assessment & designing and installing rainwater harvesting systems. The thesis also contains an energy and $ value comparison of the current public supply vs an alternative system using rainwater harvesting and greywater reuse in San Luis Obispo.
