What is a rain Barrel for?
Rain Barrels capture rainwater from your rooftop. This water would normally run into a storm drain, culvert or ditch before flowing directly into a local river, carrying pollutants that it picks up along the way. Rain water that is captured in your rain barrel is fresh and clean and can be used to water your garden, potted flowers and hanging baskets
Objectives of the Rain Barrel Project
The Rain Barrel Project is designed to:
- Promote the use of rain barrels for single family and low level community dwellings
- Promote Water Conservation
