Rain Barrel Resources

What is a Rain Barrel?

Rain barrels capture water from a roof and temporarily store it for use on lawns, gardens, or indoor plants. They are simple to install and use, and provide many economic and environmental benefits!

Important Note: Do NOT drink rain barrel water, and do not use it to wash hands.
