This topic is actually as old as mankind, but today modern materials are being used.
Try this for a taste!

I’m just imagining if everyone with 1/2+ acre in foggy areas were to have one of these systems... either to supplement their potable water needs or just to use for irrigation. What a change it would have on the world!

I love their mention of using it for reforestation. We just bought land in the hills so I’m starting to think of ways we could use this system. It may do us well to supplement our potable water.

John, have you implemented a system like this on your property or do you have something planned?

No Rebecca, you need plenty of fog and we rarely get it in the climate I am in.
Coastal ares etc are fantastic for them.
The link I supplied details various projects that have been carried out.
Some collect 2-300L per day.
 
Thanks tiny ad, for helping me escape the terrible comfort of this chair.
