Rainwater harvesting is always beneficial, whether the water is used for one houseplant or an entire garden. The Soil and Water Conservation District has for sale 55 gallon rain barrels that were made from food-grade drums that use to carry food products such as olives and pickles.
Rain barrels are an excellent way to help the environment in urban areas because they reduce storm water runoff which can carry pollutants and sediment directly to creeks and rivers. There are many ways homeowners can take action to improve their local watershed health. Learn more at dekalbcountywatersheds-il.org/homeowner.
Each rain barrel is approximately 55 gallons and is fully assembled with a screen mesh lid, two overflow spigots and a bottom drain plug.
All rain barrels are recycled food-grade drums once used to carry food products such as olives and pickles.
