The Stormwater Management Program provides rain barrels to schools and homes in Athens. Here is the information you need to get started.
Why Rain Barrels?
Rain barrels are a simple way to conserve water and reduce stormwater runoff, both of which lead to healthier streams. Rain barrels catch the water coming off your roof before it hits the ground and turns into runoff.
Free rain barrel workshops are provided to the public every fall and spring. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to our mailing list or to find out about upcoming workshops.
Don't Miss Out!
To make sure you never miss a workshop sign up for the Stormwater Education calendar or newsflash. We always post upcoming workshops on the calendar and in our monthly newsletter. If you have any questions or would like to make a container donation, contact us at email@example.com or 706-613-3440 x6717.
Buy a Rain Barrel
If you cannot wait for one of our workshops, rain barrels can be purchased at most hardware stores and from online retailers like Amazon. You can also bid on a one-of-a-kind painted rain barrel at Roll Out the Barrels, an annual event that raises funds for the ACC Green School Program.
