This is one of the simplest uses for the water, and often we can use all the rainwater available just keeping the landscaping pretty. Rainwater is BETTER than city water, because it doesn't have chlorine. Also great for washing your car!
The water in these applications is almost safe enough to drink. The industry term is hygenic, safe to touch and swim in, but not recommended for drinking.
It's done all the time, but the art has been forgotten in much of the USA. Strain out the leaves and sticks, flush away the first portion of the rainfall, and keep the water cool and dark. We add sterilization in the form of UV light and carbon filtration. Atlanta is one of the few cities in the US with a code approval for residential potable rainwater harvesting.
