Our one-day rain barrel sale is back, for the last time in 2016. Purchase your barrel on Saturday, October 22 at the Mill Creek Lowe's Parking Lot. Snohomish Conservation District is teaming up with Lowe's, King 5, and the Glenn Phillips Law Firm to build 150 rain barrels in the morning before the sale as part of Make a Difference Day. Once installed, the rain barrels will divert approximately 135,000 gallons of polluted storm water from entering our waterways each year.

You will get a pre-assembled 55-gallon barrel with sturdy components (spigot, overflow spout, mesh over inlet).

Why rain barrels?

Rain water is a free resource, that otherwise runs off of our rooftops and down the drain, or the ditch.  Rain barrels and cisterns require little maintenance and are a great way to save money and conserve water as a natural resource.

With a rain barrel you can:

  • Cut your household use of water during the hot summer months.
  • Water your plants with chlorine-free rainwater that they prefer.
  • Clean your car, bike, tools, etc. without ever using the faucet.
  • Provide water to livestock.
  • Save money on water bills.
  • Protect local streams and Puget Sound.
