Without wanting to derail the thread, what reasoning do states use to prohibit rainwater collection?

Why the fuck don't they quit pretending and just shut the whole EPA down?

It works for China.
What! Cut funding to the Great Lakes will ensure the Asian catfish invasion that eats everything. The Zebra Mussel has been plaguing the Great Lakes for years and maybe Asian Catfish eat zebra mussel. If you like to eat catfish then this is a win win situation.

"rainwater laws" , are you claiming that one, or some , of those "rainwater laws" prohibits the collection of rainwater by individuals or communities?

Bottom line: The claim that the EPA prohibits the collection of rainwater is bull-fucking-shit. Period.
