Home Peace Security Water Harvesting Rainwater Collection Issues

The past year has been one of severe drought conditions in the southern United States.  In Texas, for example, over 73% of the land is currently in 'exceptional drought' conditions.  However, there are very few systems currently in place to collect rainwater in residential and commercial areas.
