4/12/2014 - Rain Barrel Sale

Order your Rain Barrel today!

A rain barrel collects rainwater from the roof and stores it for use during dry weather to water house plants or outside gardens. Collecting water in a rain barrel is an excellent way to save some of the runoff and take the pressure off our water supply and stormwater management systems.  By using the rainwater on your gardens you are helping to replenish your groundwater and benefit our water supply.  Collected rainfall is especially valuable during droughts or dry conditions.  It contains more nutrients and less salts than tap water, so it's great for plants.

 The Department of Public Works will be taking orders with payment through April 4th.  

For more information, download order form and payment information.

Prepaid rain barrels must be picked up at the DPW on Saturday, April 12th between 9:30 - 10:30am.
