Installing a rain barrel to harvest rainwater is simply smart, especially during a drought. Instead of water from the tap or faucet, you can use the water you've collected to water your garden, or to wash your car or bike. You’ll reduce your water bill while doing your part to protect the Chesapeake Bay. Visit the Environmental Quality site
for more information on the City’s Build-Your-Own Rain Barrel Workshops or to apply for the 2011 Artistic Rain Barrel Program.
