Also on storing rainwater in a barrel. Please let me see the paper work for your water rights. Sorry that water, by law belongs to the river which belongs to the folks with senior water rights.
In some parts of the west if you head toward the river with an empty bucket you may get shot.
Don't make me put up the pictures of my hard apple cider. So, yes. I DO wait and it's oh so tasty for the trouble.
As for the illegality of storing rainwater, someone else already debunked that one. What I'm most curious about is this: Rather than just simply stating that I may be breaking the law, you used cynical speech in requesting my "paper work." To use your language in return, I see you're real interested in conserving water through your grand knowledge of water law. The fact that you would use such an attitude against
conservation saddens me. Finally, I even suggested I wanted to use the water for the toilets. Thus, the water will ultimately be returned to the basin after I pay to have it processed. In the spirit of the law, I'm not stealing. I'm detaining, using, and releasing the water back to the wild from whence it came. Hell, it's probably cleaner than the water flowing across my neighbor's dog-shit riddled lawn and directly in to the south platte when it's all said and done.
