Ottawa is Blooming Committee announces its third annual rain barrel sale in partnership with The Conservation Foundation
Rain barrels are containers that capture rainwater for later use in your garden, house plants, or to wash your car. Rain barrels effectively reduce the amount of rainwater that reaches the city’s sewer system and can help prevent the occurrence of drainage backups. City-wide use can help reduce flooding, as every gallon captured matters! The barrels also reduce pollution by capturing water that would otherwise mix with pesticides and automobile fluids that eventually flow to the river.
55-gallon barrels cost $60 plus tax. Other options are available.
