Roof Rental and Water collection
Every homeowner in the community with a roof is asked to lease the rights to harvest their rooftop rainwater. Roof rent is paid as one-time subsidy to build a rainwater reservoir at the home owner’s quadrangle. In exchange, the home owner contributes part of the rainwater to the shared reservoir for the community’s use.
The rooftop rental scheme is analogous to a utility company acquiring “right of way”.
