New law allows rainwater harvesting in Colorado

By August 5, 2009March 19th, 2015No Comments

Colorado residents are applying for rainwater collection permits since a new law went into effect in July allowing them to harvest the water from the sky. So far, about a dozen people are seeking the permits, John Ingold writes in the Denver Post. Colorado law holds that every drop that falls is already held by a water rights holder, although other Western states encourage rainwater harvesting.
