Webpage with information on the legal, regulatory and practical aspects of harvesting rainwater in Washington State.
Rainwater collection is certainly nothing new; humans have been doing it for thousands of years. However, with the advent of cheap, potable water delivered right to your doorstep, those who harvest rain have become somewhat of an anomaly. This is changing in Washington State, largely for three reasons:
• Rainwater collection can be a tool in the stormwater management toolbox,
• Rainwater collection can be an eco-friendly water supply,
• Rainwater collection projects can be a sound investment not only monetarily but for the Puget Sound.
