Now that capturing rainwater from your own roof is legal in Colorado and Colorado State University is holding a class to help educate anyone who wants to take part in gathering the water.
The Colorado State University Extension office is holding a workshop on how to build your own rain barrel and use it to catch water.
You can sign up for the class and receive a rain barrel and conversion kit to take home after. Those must be purchased and there is a $15 fee to attend the class. The barrels are recycled food grade containers given by Swire Coca-Cola Products, Pueblo.
Anyone who is interested in the classes must pre-register by Tuesday April 23. The classes will be held Thursday, May 3 at 6:00 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. at the Fountain Creek Nature Center.
