Rain Chain & Barrel

Adding a Rain Chain and/or Rain Barrel to your property is a simple way to reduce stormwater runoff from your property for re-use in your own landscape and garden.

  • A rain barrel collects water from your roof top during rain events, which prevents it from flowing off of your property and creating water pollution.
  • The water is stored in the barrel, and can be re-used to water plants later when sunshine returns.
  • Rain barrels can be made inexpensively from simple and even recycled products; however more decorative models are available at garden stores as well.

Collecting stormwater in a rain barrel allows you to have your own water source for your home or office landscape, and it cuts down on the amount of water that must undergo expensive and energy-intensive sewage treatments.
