In 2016, RiverSides installed and tested 15 automated rain barrels in the Toronto community of Riverdale. We purchased 15 RainGrid Inc. controller systems and installed them on 500 liter rain barrels carefully located on the properties of 15 participating householders. In order to document the installation process and the operational challenges associated with ground testing these first generation prototypes we have published five case studies that best articulate the most important lessons. It is our hope that these case studies will help describe our results and challenges and contribute to the development of the next generation of residential stormwater solutions.
