Rain Barrel Class
Rain barrels store rainwater runoff from your rooftop to use for hand-watering plants.
Rain barrels are inexpensive and easy to install. By collecting and storing rainwater in a homemade rain barrel, you gain a source of free irrigation for flower beds and landscapes during extended dry spells. A heavy rain shower can yield hundreds of gallons of water off the roof of even the most modest home. For example, a 1,000 sq. ft. roof yields about 625 gallons of water from a rain storm that produces 1" of rain.
* Homes must have an Orange County Utilities account that includes water service to be eligible for this program.
