We were impressed by the size of the pipes feeding the cistern! And when they told us they had never looked inside for dimension info we swung into action.
Turns out the group is a proud owner of a 8 ft x 14 ft x 14 ft underground cistern! This is an invaluable resource for a environmental organization with plans to set up a demonstration native plant landscape on its property. They plan on tapping the cistern with a pump and installing microirrigation to service the drought tolerant landscape. Naturally, the UCU will be offering knowledgeable advice as the project proceeds.
