Although there has been little rain to harvest this year -- in
most years rainwater harvesting would be very beneficial for water
supply and water course/stormwater management.
 
The state of Texas has done a very good job of promoting
rainwater harvesting and even have a 66 page guide on line

Tucson also has done a good job, with their Casa del Agua.

Many California cities have made rainwater harvesting nearly
impossible or discouraged homeowners and businesses that wanted to
install systems.
 
San Diego could be a California leader by preparing a manual and
developing a Casa del Agua for our situation. This could be near
Balboa Park, Tecolote Canyon or Bay Ho.
