Water Storage and Rainwater Harvesting Systems can conserve resources by providing a consistent supply of water year-round for in-house use, agricultural irrigation, animal and livestock watering applications, landscape use, and fire control without tapping into existing aquifers and community water systems. Water storage is a growing concern in the United States. In fact, in some states laws make it mandatory that farms and ranches must have a supply of potable water on hand at all times.
There's no harm in hoping for the best as long as you're prepared for the worst.
