Benefits of a Rain Barrel 

  • Rain barrels reduce stormwater runoff by collecting and reusing rain water.
  • Reusing rain water helps save water and money.
  • A rainwater capture feature, such as a rain barrel, is also a requirement for West Basin’s Grass Replacement Rebate Program, which starts at $3 per square foot of grass removed.
