To broaden and diversity our water conservation program, the City will be undertaking a Rain Barrel Sale each spring prior to the summer season. The program has been developed with a rain barrel vendor to provide high quality rain barrels at a competitive price and with an additional rebate from the City.
Rain barrels are a "double-duty" piece of green infrastructure that can be used to collect and distribute water during dry summer months, and manage and reduce the impact of our rainwater during wetter months. The City promotes the use of two-season rain barrels as they have a low-level drain that can be closed in the summer months to collect water, and opened during the winter months to ensure a maintenance free operation. Rain barrels can be coupled with distribution or soaker hoses to allow regular watering of dry garden beds and shrubs, or for regular dedicated watering of water hungry areas during light rains. By using a two-season rain barrel, the rain that is collected in wetter months can be spread into garden areas to slowly infiltrate and soak into the soil, thereby easing the stress on our urban drainage system and our creeks and ocean areas.
