Vote Yes on Prop 72 - Property taxation: new construction: rain water capture system


This measure would allow an exclusion from additional property taxes for construction or installation of rain water capture systems.  These systems capture, store, and use otherwise wasted rain water for landscape irrigation and similar uses, saving more conventional water for personal use.  With traditional water sources becoming less dependable, this is one more way we can diversify sources of usable water.

Vote YES on Prop 72.

• Who is responsible and accountable for managing water supplies and quality?
• How much will it cost to ensure safe and reliable supplies for the public and environment?
• Who should pay?
