Water is most definitely life! It has the power to keep us alive, and it has the force to wash us away in an instant. In the Northeast we've not had to encounter the lack of water very long, but we have more recently been deluged with too much water at times. As we enter into this era of climate uncertainty, water will likely play a different role than it has in our most recent past. But what we do know for certain that it has mass and can push things, it turns solid when it freezes, it dissolves, it sticks to things, it evaporates, and in its liquid form it follows gravity. With all this in mind, we can design and build simple and elegant systems to collect, direct, absorb, and move water in the landscape.
