According to the U.S. Drought Monitor, a weekly federal tracking of drought, 37% of the lower 48 states are currently experiencing drought conditions. The severity of this year’s drought combined with recent incidents of water contamination due to pollution has sparked a renewed interest in alternative water sources such as rainwater.
