Harvest rainwater help alleviate the effects of Drought

There are places in the US where water is rapidly becoming an issue. California is in the midst of a severe drought. In other places, there are problems with water polluted from hydraulic fracturing  otherwise known as “fracking” and chemical spills. For some people, rain water harvesting (roof water harvesting) may be a viable solution to water shortages. If your’re on a well and it goes dry you’ve got a real problem. If your drinking water gets polluted, you’ve got a problem. Check the pages of this blog for some suggestions on how to harvest water from the surface of your roof. Contrary to some people’s media caused fear, it is not against the law (with only a few exceptions) for individuals to harvest small amounts (under 10,000 gallons per day) of rain water for personal use.
