Practical viability of rainwater harvesting for outdoor use : water quality, water law, and climate change
Rainwater harvesting (RWH) is a localized renewable water supply alternative that minimizes the necessary resources for beneficial use. Estimates for RWH potential vary, and past studies conclude that accurate modeling depends on variables like precipitation, demand, and tank volume. In Colorado, RWH potential is limited by the high irrigation rates required by traditional turfgrass landscaping in the semi-arid climate. Additionally, RWH storage volume is strictly regulated under Colorado water law for both residential rooftop runoff capture (decentralized) and neighborhood-scale stormwater ...
