Description

Rain Barrel Sale

As part of a regional initiative, NVSWCD offers low-cost rain barrel sales. Unlike our build-your-own rain barrel workshops, the sales (or distribution events) include all pre-made barrels for a slightly higher price. 

Registration is required for all programs. Registration closes 3-4 days prior to the event. The fee is $65 per barrel for distribution events. Only two rain barrels will fit in most vehicles.

Refunds will not be issued for cancelled registrations or no shows. If you are not able to make a workshop for which you are registered, please notify the rain barrel program immediately. We will do our best to reschedule you for a subsequent program. Only one opportunity to reschedule will be given.

2017 Rain Barrel Sales

  • Friday, April 21 (9am-4pm) and Saturday, April 22 (9am-noon), Packard Center, 4022 Hummer Rd, Annandale
  • Saturday, June 4, Falls Church Property Yard, 7100 Gordon Rd, Falls Church

Rain barrels can be placed under your downspouts to capture runoff from the roof. By installing a rain barrel at your home you will:

  • Provide your plants with water they will love! Unlike treated water, which is "softened" with dissolved minerals, rain water is naturally soft. The water stored in your rain barrel is better than municipal water for washing your car and watering indoor or outdoor plants.
  • Save money and water! Instead of water from the tap or faucet, you can use the water you've saved to keep your home landscape happy and growing. You'll also reduce your municipal water bill!
  • Protect the Chesapeake Bay! Water stored in your rain barrel won't rush off into our streams. Instead, as you use the stored rain water around the home and garden, it will absorb slowly into the ground replenishing groundwater supplies. By decreasing the volume of storm runoff, rain barrels also help moderate stream erosion and the resulting pollution that is impairing the Chesapeake Bay.
