Free Rain Barrel Program is back!

West Basin’s free Rain Barrel Program is back with six pick-up events in the service area from September 23 through December 2, 2023.

These free events are a great way to prepare for the winter as rain barrels save water and reduce stormwater runoff by collecting and reusing rainwater.

To register and get more information, please visit:
