Sign up for your rain barrel

CW39

HOUSTON, TEXAS – Council Member Abbie Kamin is launching the first-ever District C Rain Barrel Giveaway! If you are not a District C constituent, you can still purchase a rain barrel by placing an order before Sunday, May 16, at: www.rainwatersolutions.com/products/city-of-houston-gbrc.    

In honor of Earth Month, their office is sponsoring 50 free rain barrels for District C constituents.

Why rain barrels? Harvesting rainwater contributes to flood mitigation, water quality, and water conservation. A rain barrel reduces the amount of stormwater runoff from your home, and you can use the collected rainwater for watering your lawn and garden, which in turn reduces your municipal water usage! Water is a vital natural resource – conserving it and preserving its quality is not only good for your home and neighborhood, but also good for our environment.    

The Ivy rain barrel holds up to 50 gallons of rainwater and is perfect for a single-family home. Made from recycled material, they come with instructions for easy set-up and use. For more information, visit: www.rainwatersolutions.com/products/city-of-houston-gbrc.
