Apparently in Utah having a law passed requiring citizens to register with the state and buy a "standardized container" in order to collect rainwater is a major victory. The government for decades has "owned the water rights" and deemed collection of rainwater a criminal offense. "The bill requires would-be harvesters to register online with the state and supply information about how much is to be collected and the collection point." reports Deseret News.
Legislature OKs personal collection of rainwaterIn 2000 there were riots and massive protests against the company Bechtel waging a hostile takeover of water rights in Bolivia, they too said rainwater collection was literally illegal.
It is unbelievable to me that in a third world country the people would riot and protest over their rights being trampled on yet here in America being granted the ability to apply for a license to collect rainwater is somehow a major victory.
