Rain barrels collect and store water from roofs and downspouts for future use such as watering lawns, gardens and house plants; cleaning off gardening tools; and washing your car or even your dog. They can also help lower water bills, particularly in the summer months, by collecting thousands of gallons of free water a year. Rain barrels also offer a way to decrease the amount of stormwater runoff and the pollution it can carry to local streams and waterways.

“Rain barrels are an excellent way to conserve and manage storm water at home. It’s easy to do, but workshops are helpful to walk you through the steps of construction and installation,” said Ralph Cooper, Hub co-chair. “We may not be able to meet in person, but this training will prepare you to build your own barrel at home.”

“We are really pleased to be able to offer this with assistance from our local Watershed Ambassador, Lisa Schroeder. Lisa led a rain barrel workshop at the Atlantic County Utilities Authority in February and jumped at the chance to take it online,” said co-chair Amy Menzel. “The Watershed Ambassadors have quickly pivoted to producing and offering information online and continue to serve as a resource for schools and the broader community.”

In addition to the live Zoom training, participants will also receive additional materials and video instructions for reference. In some cases, participants may be able to obtain barrels from their town Green Team. Attendees will be notified if barrels are available and arrangements can be made for a no-contact pickup.
