TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) Mechanical engineering students at Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology created a project to help recycle rainwater. It can then be used at a community garden.
Three students worked on the project for re-THink Inc. in Terre Haute.
A platform collects the rainwater and puts into a storage tank.
The water can be used on plants at the garden located in the 2300 block of Liberty Avenue.
One of the students, Andrew Hesse, says it can collect 50 gallons of water for every inch of rain that falls.
The project allows seniors to take what they learned in college and create real-world uses.
