Starting Wednesday (8/10) you will be able to store up to a total of 110 gallons of rainwater for use on your lawn or garden. The fight on whether Coloradans could store rainwater has been lengthy but will finally be legally put to rest on Wednesday.

Conservation Colorado posted a fact sheet on the new law answering your questions like:

"Where do I get a rain barrel?" You can find all varieties at Lowe's, Home Depot, Ace Hardware, Amazon and other home and garden stores. The company BlueBarrel gives recycled barrels a second life and helps you set them up into a rainwater catchment system. Make sure to grab an online voucher before checking out their stores in Denver, Lafayette, and Louisville.
