Metropolitan Water Reclamation District of Greater Chicago (MWRD) is offering rain barrels to any homeowner in its service area. For only $58, MWRD residents can receive a 55-gallon barrel, installation kit and home delivery. Up to two barrels per household may be ordered.
Rain barrels are repurposed plastic barrels designed to collect rainwater from rooftops via a disconnected downspout for reuse. The rain barrel program is a part of the MWRD’s green infrastructure initiative and supports our mission of managing stormwater and reducing water pollution.
