Senate Bill Would Require Rain Water Permits
A bill introduced by Senator Paul Shin on January
13, 2005, will authorize the Department Of
Ecology to require all people collecting rain water
in barrels and/or cisterns to obtain permits from
the Department of Ecology.
All rain water collected must be used solely for
beneficial use, and only on the same property
where it was collected.
This bill has been referred to the Senate Water, Energy, and Environment Committee on January 13, 2005.
