Colorado has been the only state with an outright ban on residential rain barrels and one of just four states that restrict rainwater harvesting.

Water law experts say rain barrels are only technically illegal, because proving they injure the water rights of other users is nearly impossible.

the only way i could see anyone having a problem with it is mosquitoes. people make big deals about everything today. i dont even see an argument for why not 2. you would conserve water by using rain barrels to water your plants and not use the public water supply.

On that website is shows a picture of a barrel (looks like garbage pale) with a screen over it which I thought was for leaves, stick, and other things including bugs.
