Mississippi Update March 18, 2014 regarding Mississippi: I found on the Mississippi state government website specifically stating that setting up rain barrels or rain water harvesting is against state law.
I did find that the laws and regulations regarding water are extremely complex in Mississippi, as they are in every state government website I have checked so far. The Mississippi Department of Marine Resources recommends setting up rain barrels in this document and shows how to set them up.
Several notes of caution: in some cases there may be good reasons for prohibiting rain water harvesting by individuals.
This may not have anything to do with “government ownership of rain”, and everything to do with public safety.
On this blog I do not intend to focus on taking a political stance on the legality or morality of rain water harvesting.
I do want to deal with truth and factual information regarding rain water harvesting.
When I get time, I will try to update each state’s info.
In places like California where there is a major drought and water is now a huge issue; expect regulations to change.
he information in this post is based on my interpretation.
“MISSISSIPPI DEPARTMENT OF MARINE RESOURCES 1141 Bayview Avenue, Biloxi, Mississippi 39530 Contact: Susan Perkins Phone: 228‐523‐4124 News Release 13‐7‐SLP January 31, 2013 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Build a Rain Barrel Workshop to Be Held Feb.
