Please share the petition link with your personal & professional networks and on your Facebook, Twitter & LinkedIn pages

WE PETITION THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION stimulate the emerging rainwater-harvesting industry through legislation or executive order, creating new jobs in design, installation, education, R&D, sales, plumbing, landscaping, roofing, monitoring and maintenance, which could propel the U.S. to international leadership, with compounding fiscal benefits. 

The many justifications include:

  • Worldwide demand for clean water exceeds supply.
  • Rainwater can help fill the gap and reduce stormwater pollution.
  • One inch of rain is over 600 gallons per 1,000 sq. ft. of roof.
  • Rainwater is a valuable resource that reduces demand on water infrastructure.
  • A new national standard, ARCSA/ASPE/ANSI 63 details safe design & installation.
  • Treated rainwater can easily surpass EPA standards. | 501(c)3 
For more information, please contact Heather Kinkade, ARCSA Executive Director, at 512.617.6528 or
