The city is making this to complex. The tanks should be just washed with clorine and reused for the collection of rainwater. Gutters can be directed into the tank and there you go done. The cost comes when you have to convert to inputing that water to the irrigation system that is also on the city water system. A simple two valve manifold would work but would not be safe as someone could end up pumping ground water into the city service. So a vacuum breaker and manifold is needed (more costs) to keep this safe. If you are just going to use a garden hose, one could use a simple drop pump into the tank and start watering. I like the idea of saving water. The city did a huge diservice to the residents when along with the STRP program, they should have included a difluient central water line for irrigation like they did for Collier Blvd. That way irrigation costs would have fallen.
