Colorado legalizes rain water harvesting

The governor of Colorado has signed into law a bill that allows anyone to collect rainwater from their roof. It is now legal to collect rainwater in Colorado. 

HB 16-1005 is the bill that was signed May 12, 2016.

This is a big change from the past one hundred and fifty years or so. It has been a crime in Colorado set up a rain water harvesting barrel until May 12, 2016. Now it is legal. The times, they are a changin’.

Now I am sure there will be people ranting about something they find bad about this. There will be nit-pickers that will find, and point out, limitations and regulations. No matter, this is still a huge positive change brought about by hard work from everyone involved. Change can and does happen, but it takes a long, long time.

Thanks to Susan, for bringing this to my attention.
