Only 513 homes needed to water golf course...

File this one under 'won't it be cool when there are 18 holes to golf on at Pravada'.

From this link...

Chris Gray of Marvel Golf Club in Benton, KY, winner of Rain Bird's second annual intelligent Use of Water honor, developed a water-harvesting program that captures not only rain, but run-off from roads and the waste discharge from the 513 residences surrounding his course. Residential water is gathered from separate septic tanks, then treated through aeration and mixed with surface drainage water in a holding pond – enough so that the 175-acre golf course is entirely self-sufficient, as reported by Golf Week.

Important to get some information out about this kind of thing before the water worry folks get all uppity (probably too late though).
