Rain Barrel Workshop
The will be a rain barrel workshop at the Green on Green event at 10 am presented by the Environment Awareness committee and Summit Soil and Water Conservation District. The cost is $40.00 to assemble and take home a rain barrel. To participate, please complete the Rainbarrel Workshop form. Space is limited.
A rain barrel is a container that collects water from a roof as it flows through a downspout. Because the rain barrel collects and slows down the runoff, it not only conserves water, but also helps filter out pollutants and prevents erosion and flooding. Rain barrels are an easy, practical way to control excess storm water and reduce the negative effects of pollution.
The installation and use of a rain barrel will also generate savings on water and sewer bills and may result in credits toward storm water fees. In Summit County, where the average annual rainfall amounts to around 37 inches, a one-inch rainfall draining off a 1000-square-foot roof will generate about 562 gallons of water. The water collected in the rain barrel can be used for lawn and garden watering, which makes up nearly 40% of total household water use in the summer season.
