“Record droughts and water-supply worries have served as catalysts for state legislatures to consider legislation legalizing the catchment and use of rainwater for use in households and for lawns.
There has been increased interest over the past five years in legislation allowing, defining, and clarifying when rainwater harvesting can occur. Rainwater harvesting is the act of utilizing a collection system to use rainwater for outdoor uses, plumbing, and, in some cases, consumption. States have also passed legislation encouraging the use of Graywater. Graywater refers to the reuse of water drained from baths, showers, washing machines, and sinks (household wastewater excluding toilet wastes) for irrigation and other water conservation applications.”

  1. The problem with the lady in Florida is that she was connected to the water and sewer services and once paid for it. She then stopped using the water and started collecting rain water. The gripe is that she is not paying for the water used which the sewer is based on but she is still sending her waste down the sewer for the utility to collect and treat. I would cut her off also. If someone wants to live off the grid, do it on land that can have a septic system to manage the waste.
