meh. nobody is that stupid... ok maybe some..
ok maybe lots...
but not someone who's smart enough to get off the grid with solar and grow their own food, is stupid enough to apply for using rain water.
I think it's a cleverly designed psy-op to make people want to use rain water more.. thus lessening the demand on the syste.. and going with the green movement.

HA! the first problem is asking to harvest it. It falls from the sky, who is going to know where it came from, unless you tell them.
if it's really that serious, and a corporation says that they have a legal right to it, with fines to back it up, the entire [or a portion of] the community needs to file a class action lawsuit against the corporation for negligence in the transporting practices of their goods, and the illegal dumping of said unwanted 'goods' onto people's property.
if they argue that that's ridiculous, there's your chance to retort that it's just as ridiculous as claiming you own the rain.
I'm going to file for a patent on human farts. That way i can sue everyone who uses my invention for their own bodily relief
The Colorado Water Court agreed, and Kris was denied the right to store a few barrels of rainwater. If she persisted with rain harvesting, she would be subject to fines of up to $500 per day.

Just an observation to everyone who blames Obama for this water issue...
READ THE DATE OF THE ARTICLE!!!
I am pretty sure that he was not POTUS at that time...I have been wrong before though.
And heres an observation that I will point out to everyone who hasn't yet grown tired of bringing patisan pouting into countless threads where it doesn't belong!
Before Your post the name Obama has been mentioned exactly ONE time. And it was mentioned relating to Carol Browners involvment in both the Clinton administration as well as the current Obama administration. A relative point considering that she is a driving force behind these rules. You are the only on who has put the words blame and Obama in the same sentance.
Instead of steadfastly looking for a fight in which you can valliantly defend Obama, perhaps you should ask yourself if you agree with laws that prevent a person from collecting rainwater from there own roofs, and consider joining the discussion.
