15. It is my understanding
that in colorado you are not even allowed to have anything on your property that you can use to catch rain in if you want to use it to water your garden, for example. Even if it comes off your roof, you have to let it go and buy it from them by using the water from your hose.
I think that's a weird law that needs to go the way of the dodo.
