In years prior, rainwater was collection was against state law, but in 2012, the California Legislature enacted and Governor Brown signed the, Rainwater Capture Act of 2012. The act exempts the capture and use of rainwater from rooftops from the State Water Resources Control Board’s permitting authority over appropriations of water. Prior to the act’s enactment, the SWRCB required would-be appropriators to obtain a permit to collect water from any source, including rain water.
