>I too have generally been disappointed by a lack of rain water interest

>There are some good organizations doing rainwater conservation work however.
>The best I've run into is ARCSA(American Rainwater Catchment Systems
>Association) in Texas. Try www.nku.edu/~biosci/ARCSA.html as a possible web
>site for them.
>Also there is a video and manual that was available(according to an ARCSA
>newsletter) from the Texas Water Development Board(about two years ago)
>which was produced by the Austin-based Center for Maximum Potential Building
>Systems..email email@example.com .
>A couple of other items....there is a small business that supplies do it
>yourselfers with rain harvesting gear called Tank Town. Again in Texas
>phone 512-894-0861....Their address is 1212 Quail Ridge, Dripping Springs,
>TX 78620. The Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center, in Austin, has a
>functional, beautiful rainwater harvesting system that was designed into
>their new(5 years old) building. Darrel Morrison of Univ of Georgia did the
>design for much of the gardens and perhaps some of the buildings. You may
