Capture Rain for Yourself, Conserve Water and Reduce Runoff. PRWC Rain Barrel Workshop - April 30

As part of the Woodbury Earth Day Festival at Hollow Park on Saturday, April 30, the Pomperaug River Watershed Coalition (PRWC) will host a Rain Barrel educational workshop. Learn the benefits of installing a rain barrel to capture rain for yourself, conserve water and reduce runoff. In a one-inch rainstorm, a shed measuring 10 feet by 10 feet would more than fill a 55-gallon rain barrel. If you capture that water and save it for later use, that will add up to a lot less runoff over the course of the year and a big savings on your water bill or less burden on your private well.


Rain Barrels can be used for watering a garden or houseplants, washing a car, and much more. Create your very own rain barrel at the PRWC Rain Barrel Workshop. Each registration includes:

(1) Rain Recycle Diverter Kit; (1) 55 Gallon Barrel;

Space for up to 4 attendees in your party.

Instructions, User-Guide, and Riversmart Materials.

$40 per Rain Barrel. For Earth Day Workshop participants only. Supplies limited. Participants must be prepared to bring their rain barrel home with them. Pre-registration and payment is required. Please arrive a few minutes before your scheduled workshop time. All tools and materials will be provided.
