Not Your Rain

In Washington state, at least, the rain that falls on your roof isn't yours. It belongs to the state and is considered public water. The state looks the other way for people who collect a few hundred gallons a year for their own use, but now some people want to collect more and they're on unsure legal ground.

Water is a big deal in the west, even in Seattle.
