SPOTLIGHT RAIN BARREL RECIPIENT:
"I am very excited about my own garden and very grateful. Special thanks to the volunteers who come out and build your garden. I call them and they are always there to answer any questions. I am very excited about my first harvest of cucumbers and summer squash! In these hard times it always helps to get a little extra help to put good food on my plate.

You Can Be Part of the Stormwater Solution!
By installing a rain barrel for your household, you can play a significant role in helping to reduce localized flooding and reduce the quantity of rainwater which carries pollutants to our local waterways. In addition, stormwater management helps limit subsidence (the sinking of soils due to the pumping of stormwater) and reduces the city's carbon footprint.
Our barrels are painted by local artists and installed by volunteers and staff.
