5th Annual Project Rainway

     

     Painted Rain Barrel

     Silent Auction Fundraiser


     May 7 - May 21, 2016


A single rain barrel will save most homeowners about 1300 gallons of water during the peak summer months. Saving water not only saves money and energy, but it helps our environment. Collecting water from downspouts keeps it from becoming runoff into our rivers and streams. It also means less water needs to be pumped out of our shrinking aquifers.
