Collecting rainwater now illegal in many states (July 26, 2010)Submitted by kevink on Fri, 07/06/2012 - 20:47
I have a feeling most people on here already know that collecting rainwater is illegal in many states. Also I did just post this in response to someone saying "everything I need or want in life is free" so I apologize if you already read that. I just thought it deserved its own post.
Many of the freedoms we enjoy here in the U.S. are quickly eroding as the nation transforms from the land of the free into the land of the enslaved, but what I'm about to share with you takes the assault on our freedoms to a whole new level. You may not be aware of this, but many Western states, including Utah, Washington and Colorado, have long outlawed individuals from collecting rainwater on their own properties because, according to officials, that rain belongs to someone else.
