CHS field for Baseball of
St. Paul Saints

St. Paul, Minnesota, USA | 2015

Beneath the CHS Field at the St. Paul Saints' home ballpark, a huge 27,000-gallon metal tank stands ready to catch the filtered rain that will keep the field green and ready for baseball.

Rainwater falls onto the roof of a Metro Transit maintenance facility next door. The water then goes through a WISY Vortex Fine Filter WFF 300 to remove debris and is piped into the 27,000 gallon tank. Finally, it's used to irrigate the ballfield and flush toilets in the restrooms.
