Rain barrels offer an alternate source of water for watering plants in and around the home. The city has purchased rain barrels and are offering them at a subsidized cost. The high quality containers are a great way to reduce summer demand on your water system.
Rain barrels are sold through the Engineering Department counter, downstairs at City Hall. Limit of one (1) per household*.
