ADS Rainwater Cisterns

HDPE and Polypropylene Rainwater Cisterns

Meet both economic and environmental goals by taking advantage of rainwater harvesting with cisterns from Advanced Drainage Systems.

From modular systems that can be specially designed to hold more than a million gallons under a huge shopping center, to systems that fit in the smallest of footprints, ADS can help you reduce potable water use while also reducing stormwater runoff volumes. ADS Cisterns are customizable, offering rainwater harvesting and retention that can release water through a controlled outlet or hold water until the surrounding soil can accept it. ADS cisterns are also available with easy maintenance, pre-treatment and and clean-out options. And because ADS cistern systems are constructed from HDPE and inert polypropylene material, you can be assured of a long service life.
