Tennessee’s record rainfall has caused pockets of flooding all across the state and more rain is expected.
While Nashville residents may dread more wet weather, the Music City Center is embracing the rain and for a good reason.
According to Director of Communications Renuka Christoph, MCC actually collects some of the rainwater that falls.
Christoph says there is a 360,000-gallon underground cistern that collects the rainfall. The water filters through the plants on the green roof and along the waterproofing membrane above the exit halls.
The water is then pumped throughout the building to flush the over 500 toilets and urinals. It’s also used for landscape irrigation.
