RESILIENT HOME / HIGH-END HOMESTEAD
Water Features and Resilience
The potable water for the house is supplied
by Madison Southern Water District (i.e. "city water"). An Aquasana filter
on the kitchen sink—one of the better under-sink filters—provides
tasty drinking water. The property has 12,000 gallons of filtered rainwater
catchment, providing ample rainwater for gardening and as backup in case
of city-water outages (in combination with a Big Berkey or other gravity
water filter). A creek is adjacent, with a reservoir within walking distance.
