Rain Barrels are a great way to use rain water in a productive way, keeping it from becoming stormwater! Water use from rain barrels helps us reduce our dependency on our municipal water supplies. Saving rain water in rain barrels can be used to water your lawn and plants. This is critical savings because residential irrigation can account for as much as 40% of household water consumption.
