    Collecting Rainwater Now Illegal in Many States as Big Government Claims Ownership...






    William F. Buckley describes a conservative as, "someone who stands athwart history, yelling Stop." - and then proceeds to drag civilization back to times best left in history's dungheap.

    All in good time and the government will be taxing us like the Brits are taxed.
    If gunners were as violent as anti-gunners believe, logically there wouldn't be any anti-gunners left.

    the gov owns all the land in the US. do you people actually think you own your land? stop paying rent (property taxes) to the gov and see what happens.

    Bassackwards thinking, using the water by collecting it directly is going to be far more efficient, than letting it fall on the ground where most will evaporate and the tiny bit that does seep through will take forever to get into the aquifer or to a stream and eventually a river, but not before picking up all kinds of pollutants.

    It decreases the load on the water treatment and dispersion systems as well, though I'm betting the hit on their revenue makes them shiver. Same issue we in the solar industry are facing. "Oh no, we the electric company can't take a minuscule hit in our wallet, because a few homeowners want to supply their own energy during the day. Even though their house doesn't use all of that energy during the day and thus it gets distributed to their neighbors who don't have solar and we can charge them for it. Sure it keeps our transformers from working harder in the hot noon sun, thus increasing their life and we won't have to replace them as often..., but it's cutting into our "now bottom line"...
    Coarse edged youth, the irish pendants string from their smiles
    not yet plucked as to slacken the seams
    and drag down the features of age,
    no folds or creases from unkempt wear
    eyes of tranquilty, crystalline-beads
    no sign of despair in their hair, nor their hearts
    but oh they have yet to be experienced and that makes aging so very worth it...ML circa2012

    depending on the state you have to "apply" for water rights and the process varies for each. all this stuff is new to me so I just did a quick internet search and this from from WA state showed up. here is a link to the page and the application is under that.

    Apply for New Water Right | Water Rights | Water Resources Program | Washington State Department of Ecology

    I didn't look over the permit application to hard. I do find it humorous that a state like Washington, which is perpetually wet would have such a stringent water rights process for low volume users. Here in the desert, we are dry as a bone. Unless you are planning on pulling industrial quantities, all you need is a building permit to drop a well. Plus water harvesting is a big deal in these parts. If a car dealer put in a cistern to capture rain water, uses it and then treats it before sending back to the aquafer, they would be given a medal. We have been rain harvesting for years using the water for my garden. If the city or county came in and said we were stealing their water rights, they could kiss my ass. They can see me in court. It hit my roof, it came from the earth, Gaia, God or what ever supernatural thing-a-ma-jig you want, it is my water.
