Is Your Cistern Illegal?

Most greenies advocate rainwater capture and reuse (in both commercial and residential applications)...but did you know that this is illegal in some states?!

Crazy, right? Not so crazy if you think about it....many states, particularly those in the west, have demand that exceeds the available supply of water, and to prevent major drought issues, have sold rights to water.

When individuals collect and reuse rainwater, less water makes it to the streams and rivers that are used to provide water to the parties (farmers, developers, water agencies, etc).

Check out the article that discusses whether laws should be changed so that rainwater cisterns can be permitted: Who owns Colorado's rainwater?

conservation of rainwater is vitally important for small vegetable producers. "Lost" rainwater, evaporates and floats away,probably never to be seen again in the area where it fell because of prevailing winds. We really need to collect it where it falls and use it wirillicedsely. Outlawing it only compounds the problem of insufficient rainfall.
