Advanced Community Planning Series #2: Post-2012 Survival Water Harvesting — Author, Brad Lancaster

Advanced Community Planning Series #2: Post-2012 Survival Water Harvesting — Author, Brad LancasterThis second installment in the Advanced Community Planning Series features water harvesting researcher and author Brad Lancaster.  With a singular focus on survival, Brad explains how to find water in cataclysm-induced droughts and then manage scare water resources in a post-2012 catastrophic environment. 

A proponent of a “slow it, spread it, sink it” approach to water harvesting, Brad has authored an immensely popular 2-part series:  Rainwater Harvesting for Drylands (Vol. 1) and Rainwater Harvesting for Drylands and Beyond (Vol. 2). This series is based on 8 guiding principles of water harvesting and management in severe drought conditions. 

A resident of Arizona, Brad has carefully studied the architecture introduced in the first installment in this series:  Advanced Community Planning Series #1: Highly, Survivable, Low-Tech 2012 Arcosanti Structures — Arcologist Erin Jeffries. 

While Arcosanti is ideally situated as an architectural prototype site, it lacks the kinds of drought water management strategies post-2012 survival communities will require.

In this extremely valuable interview with host Marshall Masters, Brad relates these 8 guiding principles to the real life needs of 2012 survivors and how to expand on the Arcosanti model with more efficient water management techniques. 

The following books / notebooks are referenced in the interview. Listeners are strongly urged to purchase both volumes.

This books gives you the essential knowledge you'll need to quickly find and harvest water in drought conditions.
Rainwater Harvesting for Drylands and Beyond (Vol. 2) The second volume expands on the basic concepts presented in the first volume. Substantially larger, it features low-tech, hands-and-shovels plans. Use them to quickly build practical, sweet water management Earthworks for any post-2012 survival community.

The need to internalize this information is now.  This is because dusting off the books and reading them when you’re dying of thirst will not work.  Dehydration is not an on the job training issue.  Listen. Learn.  Take action today.
