Trusting Rain

Collecting rain-water is a way of life in Bermuda, with each household responsible for their water supply. Few travelers to the spectacular island are aware of this centuries old method of water conservation. There are no natural rivers, streams or fresh water ponds in Bermuda. For the inhabitants, capturing rainwater is second nature, born of necessity and ingenuity. But things are changing on the island, droughts, more people and international workers, as well as a loss of the cultural history of water collection are all contributing to an unsustainable path.
