SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- The Utah Senate has passed a bill that would allow the personal collection of rainwater.

If approved the bill would reverse a decades-old prohibition on rainwater harvesting in the state.

Senate Bill 32 would permit the collection of 2,500 gallons in a storage container. The legislation now advances to the House.

Sen. Scott Jenkins, a Plain City Republican, is sponsoring the bill.
