Lucy Little, April 8, 2009 (view all comments by Lucy Little)
This book and Volume II of the same title are excellent resources for anyone interested in utilizing water without waste. It gives simple tips on how to use water wisely to detailed plans for harvsting rainwater. Until reading this, I was unaware that it is illegal to collect water in some areas, but pleased by some easy to implement ideas. I find this useful living in an area susceptible to drought, but still think anyone can benefit just by thinking about using resources more efficiently.
