Capturing and reusing rainwater offers several benefits, including saving on utility bills, boosting the health of your gardens and houseplants with chemical-free water, and helping the environment. Collecting rain in barrels helps slow runoff and encourages rain to soak into the soil more efficiently, which is an important component to reducing flooding, recharging groundwater supplies and protecting sensitive ecosystems.
PCD hosts rain barrel workshops throughout the year with funding from jurisdictional partners. To keep costs down we provide you with a disassembled rain barrel and ask that you complete an virtual informational workshop that includes directions on how to put your rain barrel together.
