Measuring and estimating rainfall in our 13 Jojo tanks

#Water leaders were able to measure and calculated  rainfall. An old horse pipe assisted them in measuring. They brought their measuring tapes to school. This challenged was successful becaue we started by discussing and deciding on how it is done.

We used a yearly average of 890ml and we were stunned to see that the amount we could harvest off our roof surfaces if we received such a yearly rainfall would be approximately a whopping  264 000 litres!  It was successful! Bring more challenges we are ready!!!
