Save money and water by purchasing your own 55 gallon rain barrel for a special price of $50 from the Ottawa Soil and Water Conservation District. This cost-effective alternative for watering your garden and lawn conserves tap water and takes advantage of an already existing source of fresh rainwater. Rain barrels provide numerous benefits to homeowners as well as the environment. They reduce runoff into waterways, help keep yards and basements from flooding and provide a naturally soft source of water devoid of chlorine and chemicals that are found in city water.
Call the Ottawa SWCD at 419-898-1595 or visit their office to buy a fully assembled rain barrel.
