Water harvesting

Asked May 22, 2017, 1:41 PM EDT

Hello,
I live in Hoosick Falls NY and our water has been found to contain PFOA's .A filtration system has been put in but soon after it was found that they system was not working and the levels of PFOA were high. Its been about 18 months since the community became aware of the contamination and we are still drinking bottled water for the most part. At this time alternative sources are being explored and one I would like to explore is water collecting, harvesting .I have concerns about the environmental impact of drawing from other distant water sources. Can you direct me to information and examples of areas that may have been successful in water collection ?Thank you for your help , Regards

Rensselaer County New York

I am not aware of any large scale efforts for water harvesting.

Thank you for your response,
And when you say your not aware are you speaking locally or globaly?
Enjoy your weekend

I was thinking primarily local.
