Rain Barrel Workshops


What is a rain barrel?  

A barrel or basin used to catch water flowing from your gutters.

How does it work?

A rain barrel is placed near a roof downspout outlet.  The barrel is then connected to the downspout and runoff is diverted into the rain barrel .  From a spigot on the bottom of the barrel, water is fed into your hose or watering can.

Where do I get one?

Throughout the spring of 2013, the WVDEP and The City of Charleston will be offering Rain Barrel Workshops.  To register contact Tomi Bergstrom at the WV DEP: 304-926-0499 ext. 1098
