The battle for legalized rain barrel usage
in Colorado has been raging for years.
But finally, as KUNC's Luke Runyon puts it in a recent report
, "With Hick's signature, Colorado's rain barrel banditry will come to an end."
As stated in a recent press release by Conservation Colorado
, Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper
will sign a bill tomorrow afternoon at the governor’s mansion that will allow residential rain barrels.
Following the signing, from 5 to 7 p.m., bill sponsors and supporters will gather and celebrate at Finn's Manor
. State representatives Jessie Danielson and Daneya Esgar are expected to attend along with Conservation Colorado's executive director Pete Maysmith and Western Resource Advocates
' president Jon Goldin-Dubois.
No longer do Colorado residents have to hide their illegal rainwater collectors or shy from using them. It's game on.
