What are the rules and regulations regarding the use of these on private property?
In 2016, House Bill 1005 was signed allowing rainwater collection of up to two rain barrels - with a combined capacity of 110 gallons - at each Colorado household. Collected rainwater may be used to irrigate outdoor lawns, plants or gardens. If you live within a homeowner's association, check the guidelines as your homeowners association (HOA) may have aesthetic requirements for the location and/or appearance of rainwater barrels.
