Get Your Rain Barrels and Protect Water Resources!



rain barrel1The Washtenaw County Water Resources Commissioner, The City of Ann Arbor, the Huron River Watershed Council, the Washtenaw County Road Commission, Great Lakes Rain Barrels and Barton Hills Village are teaming up to host a public sale of discount rain barrels this spring. Purchasers can go online now through May 13 to order their rain barrels in advance for pick up Saturday, May 18, 9am-2pm at the Washtenaw County Road Commission, 555 N. Zeeb Rd., Ann Arbor. Rain barrels are priced at $75 for a 65-gallon 85% recycled content model in charcoal or $85 for a classic edition barrel in granite. These prices are at least 20% off regular retail prices, and without shipping charges homeowners save even more. Go to to this website to get the promotional code and purchase a rain barrel.

Rain barrels collect rainwater from rooftops and save homeowners water, energy and money by reducing summer tap water needs. The stored water can be used by homeowners to irrigate gardens and lawns where the water will slowly infiltrate into the soil and plants. In addition, rain barrels also slow the rapid flow of water entering the stormwater system—storm drains, culverts, rivers and lakes—and help reduce soil erosion and flooding.
