The front page headline today (Rainwater harvesting: Does it pay?, July 7) completely misses the point (and in so doing assumes the readers aren’t very bright). The rebates in Prescott to folks who capture rain water weren’t given because those folks need money.
No, they were given because Prescott, and, well, every big city in the Southwest, has serious and increasing water problems. The rebate was just a vague, market-based attempt to encourage folks to capture water.
So it isn’t about “pay” as in money, it’s about “pay” as in having a more-secure future for your family!!
