Rain barrels finally legal in Colorado

Posted By on Wed, May 11, 2016 at 4:42 PM

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.
