Israeli science teacher and inventor Amir Yechieli flew to San Diego in February to install new rainwater harvesting systems at two schools in San Diego and one in Encinitas, bringing with him the potential to change how water is viewed and used in Southern California and beyond. The rainwater harvesting program was funded by The Leichtag Foundation. At Pacific Beach Middle School and Franklin Elementary School in City Heights, the collected water will be used to irrigate school gardens. At the Encinitas Union School District Farm Lab, the rainwater also will be used to flush toilets.
