About CANARM

Welcome to the Canadian Association for Rainwater Management. CANARM stands for the promotion and education of rainwater and storm water management best practices, focused on the Re-Purposing of rainwater and stormwater. With increasing environmental awareness and concerns, addressing the issues of rainwater and stormwater Re-Purposing has become paramount to the success and longevity of many residences and business operations. CANARM has been established to deal with the vast array of very positive actions undertaken by entrepreneurs, homeowners, designers, and to help consolidate and focus jurisdictional governance across Canada.

Learn About: New Canadian Regulations

In May 2018, the Standards Council of Canada in partnership with the Canadian Standards Association (CSA) and International Code Council (ICC), released the long awaited Rainwater Harvesting Systems National Standard: CSA B805-18/ICC 805-2018. This was a major development in the rainwater community in Canada as up until then, Canadian rainwater professionals were without standardized guidelines. While municipalities adopted storm water policies and plumbing codes were modified to include rainwater systems, there was a need for comprehensive guidelines addressing rainwater harvesting system design and installation as an alternative source of water for potable and non-potable uses.

Toilet and Urinal Fushing

Treated Rainwater used for flushing can save about one-third of potable water used in the average home
