EcoUrban Cisterns: the smart way to save water while saving money.
The average household consumes 400 gallons of municipal water per day, with 30% being used outdoors. This translates to 43,000 gallons of water used outdoors per household per year according to the Environmental Protection Agency. A 1,500 gallon rainwater cistern offsets nearly all outdoor municipal water usage, and can pay for itself in only six years.
Addtionally, the New Orleans Sewerage & Water Board is increasing water rates by 10% annually through 2020, but our rain-fed cistern irrigation systems allow you to save up to 30% on your water bill.
Installed by our licensed irrigation contractors, EcoUrban’s cisterns capture rainwater for all of your outdoor water needs, including landscape irrigation, pools and car washing.
We are the local industry experts in cistern installation.
