Yards and Gardens Need Water

What action are you taking now?

One use for water retained by rain barrels is the maintenance of healthy plants.  Water can be used as needed which means that the surface runoff during storms is eliminated (reduced flooding) and the demand for city water is reduced (reduced water bills).  Also, locally produced vegetables eliminate the greenhouse gases (GHGs) associated with industrial agriculture, storage, transport and distribution of food.
