4 Comments on Northern California chapter of the American Rainwater Catchment Systems Assn. next Monthly Meeting Nov. 9th

  1. Australia seems to be leading the way in rainwater harvesting where many territories already encourage citizens to harvest rainwater. What would it take for all stares in the USA to legalize the harvesting of rain water?

    I’ve never heard a good explanation as to why it is band in certain US states. Does anyone have any idea?

  2. Hi

    I would like to know how to report a property manager who is wasting 2’000,000, yes, two million gallons of irrigation water per year . The complex he manages is only 19 commercial condos and the garden area is really small. Thanks


  3. I’ve read some articles over this topic and saw that USA is confronting with water crisis also. Water harvesting will be the best way to manage the problem and save money on irrigation.
