The St. Clair County Health Department had launched a second rain barrel sale. The first sale of 100 barrels in April was so successful that they have ordered 100 more. These will be the last rain barrels available in 2010.
Rain barrels are available for only $55. These 55-gallon rain barrels come fully assembled, come in a neutral tan color and have the ability to connect more than one together.
Rain barrel orders and payment must be received by Friday, July 2. Residents should act fast. Pre-ordered rain barrels will be available for pickup July 6–9 at the St. Clair County Health Department.
With a rain barrel homeowners can expect to save money by conserving water during the hot dry summer months, help prevent water pollution and reduce their "storm water footprint." Plus it's a free source of water to use for watering lawns and gardens!
Residents may make payment directly to the St. Clair County Health Department by cash, check or credit card by contacting (810) 987-5306 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
