Permit Needed to Capture Rainwater

I couldn't believe what my eyes were reading. If you live in the state of Washington, you need a permit to capture rainwater in a barrel:

(4) The department may permit by rule, under conditions appropriate to the water resources inventory area, the use of rain barrels and cisterns to collect rainwater intended to be put to a beneficial use on the same property where the rainwater is captured.
