Rain Barrels

Rain barrels collect and store rainwater from your rooftop to use later for things like lawn and garden watering, instead of directing rooftop runoff to the storm drain network.  Rain barrels can lower water costs for use during peak summer months.

Rain barrel overflows can be directed towards rain gardens, trees, or other vegetation in your yard.  Rain barrels also help reduce water pollution and are inexpensive and easy to install.
