The web site is that of one of our Portland Community Gardeners from Buckman
Garden. His system does work, and it was the first home system in Portland
to get a permit as usable for domestic water.

Greywater is the only real solution as far as I can see.  The permaculture 
folks seems to have decent plans -- including filters to take out some of 
the nasty stuff -- I think we all need to start making noise, grabbing PVC 
pipe (Street's favorite! ;-D [inside Philly joke!]) and then write grants 
for what we can't salvage.  Technically, we don't need potable water and at 
this point, it looks like God is going to be cheaper than Street. (Paying 
during drought months is more cost effective than for the whole year.)

I haven't had time to check out this site (Harvest Show this week), but 
it's supposed to be a decent one on rainwater collection:

Enjoy.  I have to polish my garlic for the Show. . .
