League City to host rain barrel sale

The City of League City will host a rain barrel sale in an effort to promote the City’s Rainwater Harvesting efforts and promote the conservation of water resources.

Through the Rain Barrel Program, residents of League City may purchase ‘Ivy’ rain barrels at a discounted price of $65 until May 1, 2016 at www.leaguecity.com/rainbarrels.

Rain barrels help conserve water resources by harvesting rainwater for use in gardens, lawns and washing cars. The use of barrels also helps protect the City’s water quality by capturing rainwater from household downspouts and preventing the water from carrying potential contaminants into the City’s storm drains.

“We are committed to helping residents conserve water and learn the benefits of rainwater harvesting,” said Tommy Arredondo, Water Production Superintendent. “This program is an important step toward protecting clean water in our community because it offers an inexpensive and proven option to help people make a difference in conserving water, preventing water pollution and reducing sedimentation in our lakes, rivers and streams.”

The 50-gallon rain barrels are available for purchase through the program’s website. The ordered rain barrels will be available for pick-up on May 7 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the League City Streets Department at 1535 Dickinson Ave. A receipt for proof of purchase will be required.

Additionally, a limited number of rain barrels will be available for same-day pick-up on May 7 on a first-come, first-serve basis.

The first 120 League City water customers who participate in the program are eligible for a $25 water utility credit for up to two rain barrel installations per year. Applications must be submitted within 30 days of purchase, are only applicable to residential customers and are subject to the availability of funds.

Details about the program are available at www.leaguecity.com/rainbarrels.
