Rainwater Harvesting and Your Community Association

HOA | Condo Homeowner Responsibilities & Education, HOA | Condo Other

Rainwater harvesting is a simple, eco-friendly technique that many homeowners are using to gather rainwater and use it for simple purposes. It's a great way to water gardens, wash clothing, and take care of many cleaning tasks--or even fill a child's swimming pool. As a homeowner's association, there are several benefits to allowing rainwater collection within the neighborhoods covered by your association--but there can be downsides, as well.
