How Much Rainwater Can You Collect From Your Roof in an Extended Disaster

Code Green Prep website shares information on how much rainwater a family could collect from their rooftop in a extended disaster lasting a year or more.

Yes, in some states in normal ( non crisis ) everyday living collecting rainwater is illegal but during a disaster the rules change overnight. Other states encourage rainwater collection so you may want to check your local laws if your thinking of setting up a rainwater collection system for everyday use.

Gardens watered with rainwater have incredible harvests because of the lack of chlorine.

Meeting your family’s needs takes on a whole new perspective and taking the time to educate yourself now can make all the difference.
