Some of you have heard me complain about Western water law, and the fact that Colorado residents are not allowed to harvest and reuse rainwater or "graywater" from their sinks and bathtubs and washing machines. My state rep is finally doing something about that. That means you can too, all my fellow Colorado Hometalkers. Contact your state rep and tell them to support HB1044, which would allow graywater reuse.
Happy news about Colorado water

3po3 on Feb 05, 2013I know all this stuff can get crazy-complicated, and I hope I didn't confuse anyone with the photo I posted. I just wanted to post a basic image to illustrate the concept in case folks had never heard of graywater reuse. And @Tom Dieck, I totally agree, but there is not a lot of overlap between common sense and Western water laws.
