Harvested water in the past, has usually meant rainwater; however, there are many other sources that can supplement rain water:
1. Greywater-California has recently lightened up on grey water restrictions.
2. Air conditioning condensate.
3. Cooling tower water reuse.
All these sources can be combined to achieve a sustainable water supply for irrigation.
