Rain barrels provide an easy way for homeowners to help protect our streams and lakes in Charlotte and Mecklenburg County.
Capturing the water that flows off your roof keeps rain water out of storm drains and allows it to flow into the ground replenishing the groundwater supply.
Not only are rain barrels ecologically friendly, they are pocket-friendly too. Rain barrels provide you with a free source of chemical-free water for your yard and garden reducing your need for treated water.
A one inch rainfall over a 1,000 square foot roof provides over 620 gallons of water. With the overflow valve you can direct this water to your garden or any other area of your yard.
