L8011 : Rainwater collector

Rainwater collector
Rainwater collector
A very grand, and double-function rainwater harvesting system to overcome the shortage of surface water on the limestone plateau. This one has a porous wall as well as a collecting apron, so it should be able to work from mist and dew as well as wind-driven rainfall. This example is very well maintained, as the storage troughs and apron are nicely pointed, which is a surprise as it is a long way from the nearest habitation.
