Don't be fooled by the title of this blog. I don't discuss herbs very much here. This blog is general-purpose, although I do like ranting about politics and religion.

Rain Barrel Permits?

A daffy Washington state Senator, Paul Shin, has proposed a law that would require a private citizen to get a permit before he could set out a rain barrel on his own property. Here's some text to SB 5113:

(4) The department may permit by rule, under conditions appropriate to the water resources inventory area, the use of rain barrels and cisterns to collect rainwater intended to be put to a beneficial use on the same property where the rainwater is captured.

Now, if this thing is passed, better not look up and open your mouth during a rainstorm to drink some water! You'll need a permit to do that!
