This recent post isn't on Snopes yet, but see the older:

anonhq has two false stories on Snopes, and seems to have a 'dubious' reputation:

Pffft. Here, they actually encourage collecting rainwater for washing cars, etc.

Rainwater harvesting regulations state by state [nofollow]

If it sounds like complete BS, it probably is.

The anti gov't conspiracy theorists are working overtime.

everything that falls from the sky ...
is considered by some people
that the Universe/The Guardian/The Creator/God *(whichever you choose to call )
does not want, and therefore, belongs to the government like anything intestate ;D

like that joke about the man who says, "i throw all the money i earn each day up in the air,
whatever (God) wants , (He) takes,
all that falls to the ground is mine !!!

Here in the desert, it IS a big deal.  If someone puts dams on their property to stop rainwater, it can seriously affect farms downstream.

Sure, nobody is going to complain about a couple of rain barrels, but this guy was putting up ten foot dams.  He wasn't just catching the rain on his property, he was catching the rain running down from uphill areas.

When the annual rainfall is about 14 inches that can make the difference between life and death.

Especially since the rain comes in chunks.  If you don't get the water you expected from the big rainstorm in July, you may not get more until October.  That water flowing down from higher up is very important.

Well, yeah, but why let some facts get in the way of a good anti-government conspiracy?

yes and no. Harrington was storing 13 million gallons of rain water. Not just like some home garden or conservation project. The op link doesn't give the facts, they twist them. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/08/16/gary-harrington-oregon-water-rainwater_n_1784378.html
